I've just done a quick test of what libraries are affected on my system
find /lib /usr/lib -name '*so*' | xargs nm --dynamic \
--undefined-only --print-file-name | \
grep 'register_frame_info' | sed -e 's/:.*//' | sort | uniq
in there. If I understand things correctly, this means that installing a
fixed libc6 will break dpkg 126.96.36.199 , which is unacceptable.
A similar test for binaries, shows "apt-get" to be affected.
I'd like to propose the following approach:
- fork of a libc6-fixed package which installs in a different location than
/lib (e.g. /lib/fixed), and provide a matching libc6-dev.
- Identify which other packages besides dpkg and apt that are likely to be
essential for many people have versions that depend on
(un)register_frame_info symbols, and recompile all of them.
- Then fix the regular "libc6" package, and make it have explicit
Conflicts: with the problematic versions.
Tevens ben ik van mening dat Nederland overdekt dient te worden.
