Description Ville Skyttä 2006-10-02 15:59:33 UTC
aot-compile-rpm or something that it invokes leaves buildroot paths to 
*.jar.so.debug.  Example, ant-debuginfo-1.6.5-2jpp.2:

$ strings /usr/lib/debug/usr/lib64/gcj/ant/ant-1.6.5.jar.so.debug | 
grep /var/tmp

I'm wondering what's that path used for if anything in the *.jar.so.debug - 
and if it is used, whether it's a security issue - or if it's 
expected/harmless.  It does anyway trip check-buildroot from rpmdevtools (in 
Extras) - it finds the buildroot path in installed files and intentionally 
causes the build fail in those cases.

For now, I'll exclude *.jar.so.debug from files being checked in 
check-buildroot so from that POV this is not urgent.

It's here:

     DW_AT_comp_dir    : (indirect string, offset: 0x2c340):

whereas in libgcc we have:

     DW_AT_comp_dir    : (indirect string, offset: 0xa0):

so, it looks as though when the debuginfo file is extracted from the shared
object the directory name component is not rewritten.  This is nothing to do
with aot-compile-rpm.

Comment 2 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2008-04-02 22:29:02 UTC
Gary, does this issue apply to java-1.5.0-gcj?  I'm trying to close out old
java-1.4.2-gcj-compat bugs.

Comment 3 Gary Benson 2008-04-03 07:38:33 UTC
I'm not sure.  Have a look in /usr/bin/aot-compile-rpm and find the line that
says 'compiler.compile()'.  If it says 'copy(tmpdir, srcdir, dstdir)' after it,
the bug is fixed.  If there's no copy then the bug is still there.

Comment 4 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2008-04-03 21:07:55 UTC
The copy line is there in Rawhide.
