Re: Help: Strange behaviour of ldd
OK, I'm slightly convinced. On the other hand: Isn't this a really
error message from ldd for this reason?
No. see this clip from the man page:
For ELF programs, ldd forks and execs each program with the appropriate
environment variables set. The ELF dynamic linker, ld-linux.so,
which normally loads the shared libraries, notices this special case and
prints the dependencies.
However the program on those machines would dump core before ld-linux.so is
invoked, because those are static variables.
