/* this program will die before it ever gets to main
using gcc from Red Hat 6.1 */
I've reproduced this with
on i386. Ditto on sparc with
assigned to kingdon
changed component to binutils - looks like it
I have been unable to reproduce this problem with glibc-2.1.2-7
(and the rest of the system being pretty vanilla 6.0). JBJ, can
you reproduce the problem with -7? If not, I guess we are done.
If so, can you say a little more about what you mean by "reproduce"
(like maybe there is a system or chroot jail I can just log into
and see for myself? Or a more detailed recipe?)
All I did was compile the program and verify that, yes, the
program did die
before reaching main. If the problem doesn't occur now, I'd say it's
fixed. I'd feel better if the mechanism were better understood
I just tried it on porky, chroot'd to /mnt/build/6.1, and didn't
have a problem. This is glibc-2.1.2-12.
I'm going to assume it was a bug in glibc-2.1.2-5 and fixed in -7.
