Comment 1 Lukáš Nykrýn 2012-10-11 20:37:36 UTC
I think that this is bug in glibc (I have already contacted glibc maintainer). Configure tells that name_to_handle_at is present, but it is missing in header files.

Comment 2 Fedora Update System 2012-10-14 02:36:16 UTC
glibc-2.16-20.fc18 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 18.

Comment 3 Fedora Update System 2012-10-14 20:11:19 UTC
Package glibc-2.16-20.fc18:
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 18 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing glibc-2.16-20.fc18'
