Description Miguel Sanders 2015-11-16 13:09:02 UTC
Hi guys

I've compiled Samba 4.3.1 on our Linux ppc64 infrastructure (currently running version 4.2.3) and I'm observing a runtime relocation issue with glibc (issue not present when building 4.2.5, just verified) in which I'm getting SIGSEGV in _dl_relocate_object.

Any idea?


Comment 1 Miguel Sanders 2016-03-02 15:30:56 UTC
RELRO support seems to be broken on ppc64 (at least on my SLES 11 environment).
Disabling it, fixed the problem.
