Description bertstill 1999-09-12 17:07:17 UTC
the shared object script /usr/lib/libc.so specifies a search
group like this:
	GROUP ( /lib/libc.so.6 /usr/lib/libc_nonshared.a )
but neither of the libraries specified contain the object
__setfpucw.o (necessary to force i386 architectures to
deliver SIGFPE, for example).  fortunately, the file
/usr/lib/libc.a does contain the object.  the real bug is
that libc_nonshared.a should contain __setfpucw.o, and when
i rebuild the libraries, i will add it.  however, in the
meantime, it suffices to add /usr/lib/libc.a to the libc.so
grouping, like this:
	GROUP ( /lib/libc.so.6 /usr/lib/libc_nonshared.a
/usr/lib/libc.a )
-- it's a kludge, but it works.

Nope, the real bug is that you are using glibc-2.0 static code and
trying to link against glibc 2.1 libraries and/or object files. This
will not work, and any workaround will only produce a time bomb that
will explode some time later.

Only shared libararies can be ported and used between glibc 2.0 and
glibc 2.1
