Description Volkov Oleg 2002-03-28 21:29:16 EST
glibc-2.2.5-27 is definitely broken.

Starting with problems described at:

I discovered that size of whole glibc is about 1,3M (peoples from embede world would happy!)
But a long time ago glibc size iz more than 6M. This point on compilation error
when the named rpm was created.

# ll /lib/i686/libc.so.6
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           13 Mar 24 17:33 /lib/i686/libc.so.6 ->
# ll /lib/i686/libc-2.2.5.so
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root      1400136 Mar 14 22:34 /lib/i686/libc-2.2.5.so

A long time ago libc has more than 5M. This size is very strange.
# rpm -qf /lib/i686/libc-2.2.5.so
#  rpm -V glibc
.......T c /etc/rpc
Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2002-03-29 04:38:26 EST
Um, why do you think it is broken just because it decreased its size?
Previously, glibc included full debug information but 99.9% of users really
don't need it actually (especially when they don't have glibc sources installed).
So, the unstripped libraries were moved to glibc-debug and glibc-debug-static
packages and libraries in glibc package were stripped (strip -g to keep
symbol/string tables).
