Description Daniel Qarras 2008-03-16 11:18:28 UTC
When prelinking binaries from mozldap package warnings are printed because one
of its libraries cannot be prelinked:

prelink: Could not prelink /usr/bin/migratecred-bin because its dependency
/usr/lib/dirsrv/libslapd.so.0 could not be prelinked
prelink: Could not prelink /usr/lib/mozldap/ldapmodify because its dependency
/usr/lib/libssldap60.so could not be prelinked
prelink: Could not prelink /usr/lib/dirsrv/libslapd.so.0 because its dependency
/usr/lib/libssldap60.so could not be prelinked

Comment 1 Rich Megginson 2008-03-17 13:01:58 UTC
I'm not sure what you mean by prelinking - what are you trying to do?  Also,
/usr/bin/migratecred-bin is not in the mozldap package, and neither is
libslapd.so.0 - they are in the fedora-ds-base package.

Comment 2 Daniel Qarras 2008-03-18 20:19:53 UTC
Um, prelinking happens on Fedora by default every fortnight via cron. See
prelink man page for more info.

I think there was a policy that all binaries and libraries shipped with Fedora
should be prelinkable. You can manually verify the issue with mozldap libs by

# prelink -avmR


Comment 3 Daniel Qarras 2008-10-04 09:30:30 UTC
I think this can be narrowed down a bit:

Prelinking /usr/lib/libprldap60.so
prelink: Could not prelink /usr/lib/libssldap60.so because its dependency /lib/libsoftokn3.so could not be prelinked

It is said that libsoftokn3.so is not meant to be prelinked so suppose that's ok.

But with F10Beta I see:

Prelinking /usr/lib/libldap60.so
prelink: Warning: /usr/lib/libldap60.so has undefined non-weak symbols

As that's only a warning, not an error, I'll leave it up to you what to do with this, I will not comment this anymore.

This bug has been triaged

Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2008-11-26 02:09:28 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2009-11-18 12:27:10 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '10'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 7 Bug Zapper 2009-12-18 06:05:24 UTC
Fedora 10 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-12-17. Fedora 10 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
