Description of problem:
[root@dm lib]# nm libc-2.2.5.so
nm: libc-2.2.5.so: no symbols

compared with Suse 8.0:

[root@dm lib]# nm libc.so.6 |less

Additional info:
Comment 1 Need Real Name 2002-06-07 01:18:29 EDT
Sorry, I were wrong.
I didn't know that there is /lib/i686
But, anyway, this problem exists with Sun jdk 1.3.1 and 1.4.0.
Using of IBM jdk 1.3.1 solves problem.
But there was no such problem on RH 7.2!
Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2002-06-07 10:59:19 EDT
Even /lib/libc.so.6 has the dynamic symbol table (otherwise it would be useless),
see readelf -s /lib/libc.so.6 or nm -D /lib/libc.so.6.
The fact is that because of a bug get*ent_r@@GLIBC_2.1.2 functions are not
exported (but e.g. get*ent_r@GLIBC_2.0 are).
I've fixed this in:
Will work on a 7.3 errata for this next week.
Comment 3 Jakub Jelinek 2002-07-11 05:43:27 EDT
This was fixed in glibc-2.2.5-36.
