Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
openoffice.org-core-2.0.3.x86_64

How reproducible:
Always

Comment 1 Caolan McNamara 2006-07-29 13:04:41 UTC
Does this happen with openoffice.org-core-2.0.3-7.6 ?, and if it does can you
give me the output of /usr/sbin/sestatus. 

Was there a dialog when office crashed which had some "paste me in" info ?

Comment 2 Nicolas Mailhot 2006-07-29 13:51:31 UTC
It happens with openoffice.org-core-2.0.3-7.6. These is no crash dialog
I forced reinstall of :

# rpm -Uvh --force openoffice.org-c* java-1.4.2-gcj-compat-*
libgcj-4.1.1-13.x86_64.rpm
   1:libgcj                 ########################################### [ 20%]
   2:openoffice.org-core    ########################################### [ 40%]
   3:java-1.4.2-gcj-compat  ########################################### [ 60%]
   4:openoffice.org-calc    ########################################### [ 80%]
   5:java-1.4.2-gcj-compat-p########################################### [100%]

and now it works.

So I suspect some form of prelink f-up

Do you still need /usr/sbin/sestatus ? I don't know if I can reproduce the bug
now I've workarounded it

Comment 3 Nicolas Mailhot 2006-07-29 15:35:01 UTC
Ok, I've manually forced preliking
# /etc/cron.daily/prelink

and calc is hosed again

Comment 4 Nicolas Mailhot 2006-07-29 15:35:46 UTC
$ /usr/sbin/sestatus
SELinux status:                 disabled


Comment 5 Caolan McNamara 2006-07-31 08:26:02 UTC
So, installed freshly, all ok, run prelink, not ok.

Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2006-08-02 12:58:08 UTC
Did this just break after updating to prelink-0.3.9-2?

Comment 7 Jakub Jelinek 2006-08-02 16:05:50 UTC
This is actually a glibc bug.
71            const ElfW(Sym) *symtab
72              = (const ElfW(Sym) *) D_PTR (match, l_info[DT_SYMTAB]);
73            const char *strtab = (const char *) D_PTR (match,
l_info[DT_STRTAB]);
74
75            ElfW(Word) strtabsize = match->l_info[DT_STRSZ]->d_un.d_val;
76
77            const ElfW(Sym) *symtabend;
78            if (match->l_info[DT_HASH] != NULL)
79              symtabend = (symtab
80                           + ((Elf_Symndx *) D_PTR (match,
l_info[DT_HASH]))[1]);
81            else
82              /* There is no direct way to determine the number of symbols in
the
83                 dynamic symbol table and no hash table is present.  The ELF
84                 binary is ill-formed but what shall we do?  Use the beginning
of
85                 the string table which generally follows the symbol table.  */
86              symtabend = (const ElfW(Sym) *) strtab;

With prelinking (but even otherwise, there are no guarantees), the assunmption
that .dynstr immediately follows .dynsym is wrong.  And, for binaries and/or
libraries built with --hash-style=gnu there is no DT_HASH, which has been
superceeded by DT_GNU_HASH.  So, glibc needs to handle that.

Comment 8 Jakub Jelinek 2006-08-03 06:40:02 UTC
Should be fixed in glibc-2.4.90-17 in rawhide.
