Description jbotha 1999-09-06 18:17:02 EDT
Following error message when starting netscape 4.61-6:
/usr/lib/netscape-communicator: error in loading shared
/usr/X11R6/lib/libXt.so.6: undefined symbol: __rawmemchr

Last working version was 4.61-4.
Could the problem be related to compat-glibc?
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-09-07 10:01:59 EDT
Did you change the /usr/bin/netscape wrapper at all?
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-09-17 18:18:59 EDT
Also, what is the output of:
rpm -qi XFree86-libs
rpm -V XFree86-libs
Comment 3 jbotha 1999-09-18 01:15:59 EDT
Well, I had some time to dick around with it tonight, and it turns
out my original hunch was almost correct - the problem is with compat-
libs, or, more precisely, with rpm-3.0.3-0.26.  Turns out that rpm
doesn't know how to do %files /usr/%{buildarch}-glibc20-linux/lib/*.
The files are placed inside /usr/%{buildarch}-glibc20-linux/lib in
the .rpm, instead of in /usr/i386-glibc20-linux/lib.  Changing the
spec file to read %files /usr/i386-glibc20-linux/lib/* still does not
Should I log a new bug for rpm?
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 1999-09-18 14:52:59 EDT
So what you're saying is that the compat libs were actually not
where netscape was looking for them, correct?

What probably needs to happen is %{buildarch} needs to be
changed to %{target_cpu} in the spec file. (The original
packages were built with RPM 2.5.)
Comment 5 jbotha 1999-09-19 23:18:59 EDT
Yes, that's what I was saying.  But, I tried to rebuild compat-libs-
5.2-2 with %{_target_cpu}  (%{target_cpu} does not work) and I am
still getting the __rawmemchr error from Netscape.  Now, since my
compat-libs-5.2-1 binary rpm from Hedwig works, it brings us back to
your question:
rpm -q XFree86-libs => XFree86-libs-3.3.5-1.6.0
rpm -V XFree86-libs checks OK.
And, no, I did not change the wrapper.

That's about all I have time for tonight...
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 1999-09-20 11:34:59 EDT
Oops.... you can't build the compat-libs on a 6.0 system,
as that will just build a bunch of glibc-2.1 libs. That's
probably where your problem is.
Comment 7 jbotha 1999-09-20 11:48:59 EDT
Yip, that would be it.
