Re: glibc recompiling was Re: libc resolver problem solved (critical bug)
Hi... sorry for jumping into this thread so late; I've been recovering
from SANE :)
I checked dpkg 126.96.36.199, and it seems to me that only dselect will break when
libc6 is upgraded:
% nm -oDp usr/lib/libdpkg.so.0.0.0 usr/bin/dpkg usr/bin/dpkg-deb usr/bin/dpkg-split usr/bin/md5sum usr/bin/dselect sbin/start-stop-daemon | grep register_frame_info
usr/bin/dselect: U __deregister_frame_info
usr/bin/dselect: U __register_frame_info
(The command-line for nm lists all ELF binaries in the dpkg package)
dselect is the only program that requires __register_frame_info as a
dynamic symbol. This is what I expected, since dselect is linked with
The essential packaging tools (dpkg, dpkg-deb) will probably _not_ break
when a fixed libc6 is installed.
Dale, given this, do you think you can skip the Conflicts entries?
Is it worthwhile to have this tested?
