Description Valdis Kletnieks 2003-06-11 07:33:33 UTC
Description of problem:
manpage for ld-linux doesn't correspond to binary.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
glibc-2.3.2-48 and man-pages-1.53-3


How reproducible:
'man ld.so' and '/lib/ld-linux.so', and compare descriptions of rpath.


Steps to Reproduce:
1.
2.
3.
    
Actual results:
Differing info (see below)

Expected results:
Consistent info..

Additional info:
'man ld.so' says:
       --ignore-rpath LIST
              Ignore RPATH and RUNPATH information in object names in LIST.

Running /lib/ld-linux.so says:
% /lib/ld-linux.so 
Usage: ld.so [OPTION]... EXECUTABLE-FILE [ARGS-FOR-PROGRAM...]
<text elided>

  --list                list all dependencies and how they are resolved
  --verify              verify that given object really is a dynamically linked
                        object we can handle
  --library-path PATH   use given PATH instead of content of the environment
                        variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH
  --inhibit-rpath LIST  ignore RUNPATH and RPATH information in object names
                        in LIST


Note the conflicting --inhibit-rpath and --ignore-rpath
