Description Matt Wilson 2010-07-18 01:10:18 EDT
Description of problem:
When running in a 32-bit Xen domU environment, glibc does not load the nosegneg libraries when "hwcap 1 nosegneg" is in /etc/ld.so.conf.d/nosegneg.conf

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.12-1.2.el6

How reproducible: 100%

Steps to Reproduce (on Xen domU):
1. # echo hwcap 1 nosegneg > /etc/ld.so.conf.d/nosegneg.conf
2. # ldconfig
3. # ldd /bin/true
Actual results:
        linux-gate.so.1 =>  (0xb7798000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0xb76bb000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xb7799000)

Expected results:
        linux-gate.so.1 =>  (0xb7798000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/i686/nosegneg/libc.so.6 (0xb7624000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xb7799000)

Additional info:

This bug was introduced in http://sourceware.org/git/?p=glibc.git;a=commitdiff;h=7bfa311ff51999f9e92620268e493959a2f7bfb4 

Rolling back this change corrects the behavior.
Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2010-07-18 01:37:51 EDT
This issue has been proposed when we are only considering blocker
issues in the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. It has
been denied for the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.

** If you would still like this issue considered for the current
release, ask your support representative to file as a blocker on
your behalf. Otherwise ask that it be considered for the next
Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. **

Comment 5 Matt Wilson 2010-07-20 14:02:41 EDT
tested this yesterday and forgot to report back. This does seem to fix the problem.
