Description buster 2002-04-19 13:04:39 EDT
Description of Problem:
Newest RPMs of glibc and glibc-common cause VMware installation to fail on 
network configuration.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
glibc-2.2.5-30, glibc-common-2.2.5-30, glibc-2.2.5-32, glibc-common-2.2.5-32

How Reproducible:
Install Skipjack beta 2 and use update agent to install all available updates. Then 
try to install VMware Workstation 3.1.  VMware configuration fails when finding 
available networks for NAT, etc.  Searching USENET, I found a suggestion to 
downgrade to glibc found on Skipjack CD (2.2.5-30)- this fixed the problem.  

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Skipjack Beta 2
2. Apply all updates using Update Agent

Actual Results:

The same problem (relocation error, missing symbol: atexit) also occurs if you
try to run the Citrix ICAClient and the Veritas NetBackup Linux client.

The problem went away when i downgraded glibc-*-32 to glibc-*-30.
Comment 2 R.K.Aa. 2002-05-18 10:39:29 EDT
i think these are two different problems.
The original bug may be related to bug 62357

The missing "atexit" in the coment above i saw in glibc-2.2.5-32 with several
apps, in particular GL related ones (quake3 amongts others), but *upgrading* to
glibc-2.2.5-34 cured it (the one with RH 7.3)

What is the statuc of this if you use RHL9 and LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1?

No reply in almost 6 months.  Closing as CURRENTRELEASE.
