Re: Ldconfig segfaults

David Engel, the ldso maintainer, reports bug #61461 closed; he changed
ldso to compile with -O2 on sparc, as per Manuel Odendahl's request:

Done in 1.9.11-6.



However, as Maxime Baudin later noted, you need to compile with
optimization off for ldso to run correctly built w/gcc 2.95.2. I pointed
this out to David and he acknowledged:

I don't remember seeing this message.  I'll make another release right



So I just wanted to warn everyone that 1.9.11-6 may not fix this issue,
but be patient, it's in the works.

In future, for my (purely personal) benefit, I'd appreciate if people
would note that they've bugged anything they report to the list, include
the bug #, and tack on to the thread that the issue is closed when the bug
report is. May help prevent future miscommunication/lack of communication


This _is_ a weird one; why does the optimized code seem to run fine on
sun4c's and not on sun4m's (/me finds ldconfig runs w/o problem on the
IPX, but crashes on the SB3)? Maybe I'll take a disassembler to it at some
point if I get massively unlazy.

mmmmm, beautiful debian on sparcbook .... soon, soon.

Cheers all, and thanks to everyone who worked on fixing this.
