prelink infinitely loops when processing /usr/bin/fparser
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:04 EST
Description of problem:
prelink goes into an infinite loop when processing /usr/bin/fparser (part of frysk)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
md5sum 1998f58450b20f2b8f4d37a59b8aacca /usr/bin/fparser
Steps to Reproduce:
1. prelink /usr/bin/fparser
Hangs in infinite loop
See attached backtrace, gathered by attaching gdb to prelink, ctrl-c, and "bt full"
Created attachment 154820 [details]
gdb backtrace during infinite loop
Also, running "prelink -y" on _any_ of the /usr/bin/f* from the frysk package
will either hang as this first one did, or print loads of gibberish to the
screen. This is a nasty one.
Can't reproduce, with the same i386 prelink package and same frysk package, same
md5 sum before prelinking.
I can no longer reproduce the first problem either, but am still encountering
the second one... running "prelink -y /usr/bin/fparser" sits for a while and
then prints a load of random data to the screen. This happens both before and
after the original file has been prelinked.
Can't reproduce the main issue I was reporting any more, and the second
complaint was my error. I think this one can be closed.
