Description Mike Rambo 2003-01-04 22:27:41 UTC
Description of problem:
Domino R5 server (Lotus Notes) hangs when setup is attempted after installation. Appears to be a problem between glibc-2.2.5-42 and the IBM Java version 1.1.8 used by Domino.

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

How reproducible:
Install Domino R5 server package and run 'http httpsetup' to start the setup process. Will see a banner, a libjitc.so error, and then hangs. The libjitc error I believe is not relavent to the problem. Installing the full IBM Java 1.1.8 jre package gets rid of the libjitc error but not the hang.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Domino R5 version 5.07
2.run 'http httpsetup' to configure
Actual results:
Prints a banner and hangs.

Expected results:
Should print several messages after the banner, the first being java related, and enable you to configure the server via a web browser.

Additional info:
This appears to be a conflict between the java version used by Domino R5 v5.07 (which is IBM Java v1.1.8-?) and glibc version 2.2.5-42. Steping glibc back to version 2.2.5-34 eliminates the problem.

There is not much we can do.  All Java implementations had big ABI problems in
the past.  IBM's is especially notorious, they are violating ABI rules left and
right.  Every tiny change in the runtime can upset it.

If possible, stay away from IBM's JDR, Sun's seems to be much cleaner.  And it
works on RHL9.  Of course I expect Domino will only work with IB's
implementation.  So the only option is to stay with the code IBM certified or
pester them for new code which works on the release you're trying to use.  There
are IBM JREs which work on RHL8 and maybe RHL9 if LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1 is used.

closing, there's no bug in the Red Hat glibc.
