Description Balint Cristian 2008-08-08 02:47:13 EDT
Description of problem:

Dear Cristian !

I've just noticed that on the fc9 systems I'm looking after, the current 
grass-libs package interferes with correct operation of prelink - 
resulting in a creeping performance degradation after a while...

/var/log/prelink/prelink.log  reports:

/usr/sbin/prelink -av -mR -f
/usr/sbin/prelink: /usr/lib/libgrass_gproj.so.6.3.0 has a dependency cycle
Laying out 1081 libraries in virtual address space 00101000-50000000
Random base 0x011c6000
/usr/sbin/prelink: Could not find virtual address slot for 
Prelink failed with return value 1

grass itself seems to be running ok and I did not have the time yet to 
investigate the root cause of the problem - the cyclic dependency in 
libgrass_gproj seems to be through gdal, while the missing slot for 
libgrass_sim seems to be the real show-stopper for prelink.

As a quick-fix (ie. to have prelink work again while investigating the 
grass problem, I would recommend to blacklist the two suspect libraries 
for prelink, e.g. by creating /etc/prelink.conf.d/grass.conf  with the 

-b /usr/lib/libgrass_gproj.so.6.3.0
-b /usr/lib/libgrass_sim.so.6.3

and adding it to the package.

Hope that makes sense ... cheers,

 Dont know if its prelink fault, or grass-lib missbehave,
but if Jakub have the time to look over would be great, 
otherwise i'll accept to fix by blacklist as Wolfgang

 Jakub, would you comment a bit ?
