Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 55084
strings does not return anything when run on binaries
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:01 EDT
Description of Problem:
Summary says it all.
strings /etc/passwd displays the whole file, as expected.
strings /bin/ls or strings /lib/libc.so.6 don't display anything.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -Uvh binutils-22.214.171.124.7-1.i386.rpm
2. strings /lib/libc.so.6
strings from /lib/libc.so.6
This breaks various configure scripts.
Worked in 126.96.36.199.8-9
Yeah, I've screwed it up.
Testing fix now...
Should be fixed in 188.8.131.52.7-2.
