Re: DynaLoader issue with perl 5.12 on armhf when using fakechroot


I partly solved this issue - or, found a workaround that works for me. I
still did not find out why it happens though.

To be able to be able to execute foreign binaries in a fakechroot
environment one needs a directory tree of those foreign shared libraries
in /etc/qemu-binfmnt/arm/ (for armel and armhf) and foreign versions of
the fakeroot and fakechroot libraries in /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabi/
(for armel and armhf).

So far I used the armel libraries even for armhf rootfs builds as they
seemed to suffice to execute armhf binaries with qemu usermode

The problem with the perl version mismatch was gone when I replaced the
libraries in /etc/qemu-binfmnt/arm/ with armhf libraries instead of
armel ones and put armhf versions of libfakechroot.so and
libfakeroot-sysv.so into /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/ (instead of

This does not yet tell me why perl throws this error as all other
binaries seem to work fine with armel shared libs but the error is gone

I'm now wondering: is that perl behaviour a bug or a feature? Is there
something that should be fixed in perl or elsewhere now that I know that
the problem doesnt occur with armhf shared libraries?

cheers, josch
