Description Nigel Metheringham 1999-10-05 14:57:28 UTC
[Not really a RH 6.1 issue, but its the version of rpm that ships in 6.1] Recent changes to rpm have made a few parts rather dependant on the glibc libraries. Specifically misc/err.c is glibc dependant - it includes features.h which is a glibc-ism and uses some functions form it as well... Some of the functions which are glibc specific are reimplemented in libmisc.a. However libmisc.a is not linked into the majority of programs. The following patch (at end) to fix this should be OK on all architectures including RH linux iteself (since then libmisc is created but empty). Additionally for solaris I faked up a misc/features.h with the following contents (its a hack, but it works) --- start features.h--- #define __P(x) x #define __BEGIN_DECLS #define __END_DECLS #define fputs_unlocked(x,y) fputs(x,y) #define __set_errno(x) errno=x static char * __progname = "rpm"; --- end features.h--- #### Patch data follows #### diff -c 'BUILD/rpm-3.0.3.orig/Makefile.in' 'BUILD/rpm-3.0.3/Makefile.in' Index: ./Makefile.in *** ./Makefile.in Sun Sep 26 01:44:56 1999 --- ./Makefile.in Tue Oct 5 12:58:57 1999 *************** *** 183,189 **** CVSTAG = r$(subst .,-,$(VERSION)) rpm2cpio_SOURCES = rpm2cpio.c ! rpm2cpio_LDADD = $(mylibs) rpmconvert_SOURCES = convertdb.c oldrpmdb.c rpmconvert_LDADD = $(mylibs) @LIBMISC@ -lgdbm --- 183,189 ---- CVSTAG = r$(subst .,-,$(VERSION)) rpm2cpio_SOURCES = rpm2cpio.c ! rpm2cpio_LDADD = $(mylibs) @LIBMISC@ rpmconvert_SOURCES = convertdb.c oldrpmdb.c rpmconvert_LDADD = $(mylibs) @LIBMISC@ -lgdbm diff -c 'BUILD/rpm-3.0.3.orig/tools/Makefile.in' 'BUILD/rpm-3.0.3/tools/Makefile.in' Index: ./tools/Makefile.in *** ./tools/Makefile.in Sun Sep 26 01:45:10 1999 --- ./tools/Makefile.in Tue Oct 5 12:57:56 1999 *************** *** 153,159 **** mylibs = $(top_builddir)/build/.libs/librpmbuild.a $(top_builddir)/lib/.libs/librpm.a $(top_builddir)/popt/.libs/libpopt.a !

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-10-05 15:34:59 UTC
Thanks for the patch, I will add during the rpm-3.0.4 development cycle. For rpm-3.0.3, I chickened out and removed all dependencies on err.h until I had a chance to think through what you have done in your patch.
Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 1999-12-15 18:09:59 UTC
rpm-3.0.4 does not use/need err.c. In addition, most of the libmisc portability functions, if needed, are now included in rpmlib (see lib/stubs.c) to avoid tedious shared library dependency issues when linking against rpmlib.
