Description Tim Potter 1999-07-08 06:31:44 UTC
There don't seem to be any weak symbols for (at least) the
fd I/O functions which makes it impossible to wrap libc
functions using the standard _fname or __fname trick.  I'm
trying to build the smbwrapper program from the Samba
source.  They seemed to be present in glibc-2.0.

acronym:/scratch/1/lib$ nm | grep opendir
0005ae80 T __opendir
0005ae80 W opendir

acronym:/scratch/1/lib$ nm /lib/ | grep opendir
0008b4a0 t __opendir
0008b4a0 W opendir

Comment 1 Cristian Gafton 1999-07-28 05:20:59 UTC
the __xxx symbols are internal to glibc and should not be used. A new
version of smbmount should fix this.
