Description Ville Herva 2002-03-17 17:12:48 EST
Description of Problem:
Sun JRE 1.3.1 no longer works with glibc-2.2.5, like it did with glibc-2.2.4.
Self-compiled wine breaks the same way.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
glibc-2.2.5-26.i686.rpm (from rawhide)

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch old wine executable or jre.

Actual Results:
java_vm: relocation error: /usr/java/jre1.3.1/lib/i386/libjava.so: symbol
__libc_wait, version GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file libc.so.6 with link time

Additional Information:
Comment 1 Ville Herva 2002-03-17 23:14:47 EST
Ok, the glibc I used to have (and that worked) is glibc-2.2.4-20.i686.rpm from
rawhide. The jre is jre-1.3.1-fcs.i386.rpm from Sun.com.

The wine version that didn't work is Wine release 20011004 (compiled on Oct 27
from winex CVS against then recent glibc-2.2.x). 

The error message from wine is

Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2002-03-18 09:38:30 EST
Both Sun and Wine authors have been notified that they cannot use glibc
internal symbols in their apps. For glibc-2.2.5-27 I've reexported those
symbols temporarily, but those apps will stop working with glibc 2.3 unless
they are fixed.
Comment 3 Ville Herva 2002-03-21 14:44:32 EST
Ok, I verified that it glibc-2.2.5-27 works at least with jre-1.3.1 (I already
recompiled wine).

Thank you for the excellent response!
