Description trieu.nguyen 1999-11-03 17:04:30 UTC
system is Pentium, video card is S3 86C765
Frequency: 100% reproducible
Install linux 6.1
run X windows using "startX"
the following error occurs
BUG IN DYNAMIC LINKER ld:so: dynamic_link.h:57
elf_get_dynamic_info: Assertion '! "bad dynamic tag"' failed

Tried different configurations using 'xf86config', problem
still occurred.

Also Tried a second pentium machine with video card S3
ViRGE.  The problem still showed.

This is a serious bug which I think may relate to other bugs.  This will prevent users from running X and X

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-11-03 17:13:59 UTC
What does:
rpm -V glibc
rpm -V XFree86

Also, is this a new install or an upgrade, and what does
/etc/ say?

3900 MB / and 208 MB swap.

Selected everything to install.
After installation completed on reboot I get lot of

After login in as root tried to run 'ps' command and got
 the same error (and no output from ps command).

Also applied all available updates (downloaded rpms), but
problem persists.

1. I do not have any problem with X programs so I do not think 6654
   is duplicate to this.
2. I did ldconfig -n, even then got the same problem with "ps"
   suggesting it is not a problem related to /etc/
   I think the problem is how "ps" is compiled/linked.
   ldd wont run on /bin/ps so I did 'string /bin/ps | grep lib'
   here is what I got:

      Compiled with: libc %d, internal version %d.%d

   /bin/ls work file so I did same on it an got

I also tried on the Pentium Pro 166MHz system with video card: ATI
Mach64 3D RAGE II (4MEG).  It still exhibits the same problem.  I
think this is a bug in the  dynamic linker, not in Xfree86,
since 3 systems with 3 different videos cards (S3 86C765, S3 ViRGE,
ATI Mach64 3D RAGE II) already been tried.
