Description oran 1999-04-08 22:21:48 UTC
It seems a fresh compilation of the latest socks5clients
(1.0r9) dumps core when runsocks is run. It seems the
problem lies with the dynamic loader, and not socks code
itself (well at least after stracing it seems so). With
various programs the point of error lies at different
points, but always during the loading of libraries.

runsocks is a simple wrapper which sets LD_PRELOAD and
LD_LIBRARY_PATH so that non-socks5-programs (e.g.
/usr/bin/telnet) can be socksified. It has it's own dynamic
lib which plays a bit with bind(), connect() etc. and I've
never had any sort of problem with it before.

This problem occured with glibc2.1.1-3 as well as some
earlier version. Since I made several upgrades (primarily
gnome-oriented) at the same time the problem may lie
elsewhere (although strace does lend the idea that it's
dieing while loading libraries).

I would guess this is more of a socks5 problem, that assumes that
glibc provides and will always a provide a certain interface for
internal functionality.
