Description Sam Varshavchik 2002-03-16 03:36:24 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.8+) Gecko/20020202

Description of problem:
/lib/i686/libpthread.so.0 defines the __libc_wait@@GLIBC_2.0 symbol in glibc
2.2.4 on Red Hat 7.2

glibc 2.2.5 no longer defines this symbol in /lib/i686/libpthread.so.

Looks like this breaks Java.

Sun's Java2 SDK runs fine on 7.2 with glibc 2.2.4, but apparently doesn't like
glibc 2.2.5 :-(

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Sun's JAVA2 SDK.
2. Try Do anything, such as:

$ cat >x.java
class x {
$ javac x.java

Actual Results:

Error occurred during initialization of VM
Unable to load native library: /usr/libexec/java2/jre/lib/i386/libjava.so:
symbol __libc_wait, version GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file libc.so.6 with link
time reference

Additional info:

Although the error message refers to libc.so.6, looking at the strace shows
libpthread being opened last before everything bombs out.

Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2002-03-17 19:14:17 UTC
Sun has no business using glibc private symbols (especially when they are so
promoting ABIcheck).
In glibc-2.2.5-27 I've temporarily exported it again, but in 2.3 it will be
gone for good.

Can you please try and get this message to the Sunsoft people directly?
