Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 73027
incorrect dependency on libgd breaks apache
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:46:11 EDT
Description of Problem:
There should be a dependency on libgd.so.1.8.4 (or the gd-1.8.4
package) - with gd-1.8.3 /usr/lib/apache/libphp4.so has an unresolved symbol (I ran into this
trying to upgrade slowly and carefully from RH7.1 to RH7.3)
Version-Release number of
selected component (if applicable):
php-4.1.2-7.3.4 and gd-1.8.3-7
Install these packages
Steps to Reproduce:
Apache fails to load libphp4.so, complaining about unresolved symbol
Apache should have loaded
I don't know if the procedure of upgrading Redhat versions bit by bit is
officially "supported", but it is absolutely essential for upgrading a server while trying to
keep services running as much as possible,
gdStringFT ? never heard of it. Doesn't even exist in the gd libs
[root@dhcp59-221 root]# nm /usr/lib/libgd.* | grep -ic gdStringFT
[root@alpha php-4.1.2]# grep -irc gdStringFT *
Not directly referanced by anything in the php codebase either.
google has never heard of it either...
Sorry, I can find no referance to this gdStringFT in the codebase.
Oh wait, you did a jump from 7.1 to 7.3? how as an upgrade install? As a rpm
-Fvh against an RPMS directory?
Sorry, my mistake, that should be gdImageStringFT. It's in the 7.3 version of gd but not the 7.1
I upgraded by manually upgrading small dependency groups of RPMs at a time
(actually using apt-rpm, but that just calls rpm -U to do its work).
Ok so it's a BuildRequires: gd >= 1.8
it's added for errata but for now as you've already seen, just update gd
surely it's "Requires: gd >= 1.8.4"? I wasn't trying to build it and the difference between 1.8.3
and 1.8.4 is significant, since it's in 1.8.4 that the symbol appears.
yes, sorry, not getting enuf sleep here...
Leaving this open whilst an errata is still pending.
