Date: Sun, 12 Feb 2012 22:08:54 +0400 From: Vasiliy Kulikov <segoon@...nwall.com> To: owl-dev@...ts.openwall.com Subject: glibc version Solar, all - Arach on #openwall gave me the link: http://blog.flameeyes.eu/2011/08/21/again-about-glibc-2-14-rpc-and-modern-software IOW, glibc 2.14+ marked some old RPC API as "deprecated". This API is still reachable by already compiled programs, but compilation of the same software from sources now fails. The software, which is claimed to be broken: oc, torque, libcult, libassa, hamlib, lives, xinetd, db (yes Berkeley DB), libdap, tcb, netkit-rusers, netkit-bootparamd, ogdi, charm, netkit-rwall, gs-assembler, ctdb, perdition, amanda, scilab... As we have some of this software in Owl, we should do one of the following: 1) upgrade glibc to 2.13, not 2.14. 2) fix glibc to export this API. I think we should prefer (2) as old glibc at least doesn't export some modern syscalls, which exist in newer Linux kernels. Thanks, -- Vasiliy
