Comment 1 Nicholas Miell 2006-07-02 04:07:02 EDT
dlmopen will segfault in the rtld when passed flags LM_ID_NEWLM and

Failure is at dl-open.c line 102/103:

99        if (GL(dl_ns)[new->l_ns]._ns_global_scope_alloc == 0)
100         {
101           /* This is the first dynamic object given global scope.  */
102           GL(dl_ns)[new->l_ns]._ns_global_scope_alloc
103             = GL(dl_ns)[new->l_ns]._ns_main_searchlist->r_nlist + to_add + 8;
104           new_global = (struct link_map **)
105             malloc (GL(dl_ns)[new->l_ns]._ns_global_scope_alloc
106                     * sizeof (struct link_map *));

because _rtld_local._dl_ns[new->l_ns]._ns_main_searchlist is NULL.

test program
Comment 3 Ulrich Drepper 2006-07-26 10:35:02 EDT
It makes no sense to use RTLD_GLOBAL when dlmopen loads the object in anything
but the first namespace.  I added a test to catch that upstream.  It'll be in
the next rawhide release.
