Description Brian G. Anderson 2002-04-19 04:04:43 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020408

Description of problem:
When I use VMware 3.1 with beta 2 I get things like:

/usr/bin/vmware-smbpasswd.bin: relocation error: /usr/bin/vmware-smbpasswd.bin:
undefined symbol: atexit

This comes up with almost any of the VMware utilities such as vmware-ping.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install VMware-workstation-3.1.0
2.try to run vmware-config.pl
3.When it tries to ping a network (vmware-ping) or set a samba password
(vmware-smbpasswd.bin) it will faill with the relocation message.

VMware is not alone ... 

$ realplay 
realplay: relocation error: realplay: undefined symbol: atexit

Comment 2 Ulrich Drepper 2003-04-17 17:10:59 UTC
What is the status of this if you're using RHL9 and LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1?

Comment 3 Brian G. Anderson 2003-04-17 18:22:40 UTC
This problem has gone away in VMWARE 4.0 which works perfectly on RH9.

Comment 4 Ulrich Drepper 2003-04-22 05:08:51 UTC
Apparently fixed in RHL9 and the current glibc RPM.
