Description Sandor W. Sklar 2006-07-03 23:15:34 UTC
Description of problem:

Every time /etc/cron.daily/prelink runs, it aborts with an error.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

totally consistant across five systems.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run the command /etc/cron.daily/prelink
2. See the STDERR:

  ./prelink: line 47: 30548 Aborted                 /usr/sbin/prelink -av $PRELINK_OPTS >>/var/log/
prelink.log 2>&1

3.  Look at the contents of /var/log/prelink.log  (which is attached.)
Actual results:

output on stderr every night from every machine.

Expected results:

no output on stderr for an unmodified command on an unmodified system.

Additional info:

/var/log/prelink.log attached.

Comment 2 Sandor W. Sklar 2006-07-05 17:43:02 UTC
Problem resolved by appending "-l /usr/local/lib{,64}" to /etc/prelink.conf.

Comment 3 Rainer Traut 2007-01-04 14:21:29 UTC
No, this does not solve the problem here.

/etc/prelink.conf has:

I have deleted prelink.cache to test, prelink.cache is never recreated.
