Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 448459
prelink 0.4.0-3 fails with assertion prelink: exec.c:194: prelink_exec: Assertion `old_bss != -1' failed.
Last modified: 2009-06-14 23:22:09 EDT
I noticed that the daily cronjob for prelinking was failing and retuning 134.
Upon investigation it seem that "prelink -av -mR -f" is hitting:
prelink: exec.c:194: prelink_exec: Assertion `old_bss != -1' failed.
When running prelink -v -mR -f /usr/bin/ddjvu succeeds (output attached)

quick gdb session
I wanted to verify that it was in fact "/usr/bin/ddjvu" failing so I did some
quick poking with GDB. I don't pretend to understand what prelink is doing :)

Output readelf -a /usr/bin/ddjvu
For comparison with what's in "dso" in the gdb output
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '9'.
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 9'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 9 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:
FWIW Fedora-11 doesn't seem to have this problem any more (Fedora-10 did).
I'll close the bug.
