Questions of the Glibc-2.7 universe...


Attempting to upgrade to the latest library. On my first attempt I needed to upgrade my gcc version. On the second attempt I get this error(during the ./configure stage):

linker with -z relro support required

I can handle upgrading or installing neccessary software requirements, but this just perplexes me. Doing a search on google results in a plethora of mish-mashed articles resulting in all things that have to do with the word link and RELRO. Any help appreciated.

Thanks
x.D

I'm guessing this has something to do with the ld program? After typing in:

ld --help

I noticed a few of the -z options the glibc configuration tested for just prior to the -z relro error (such as -z nodelete and -z initfirst options). Those options exist on my version of ld, but no such relro option does exist, is this on a later version of ld or earlier versions?

My version of ld is: GNU ld version 2.15.90.0.3 20040415

Also, is GNU ld part of the 'binutils' package?

Thanks for response,
x.D

Any time you ask a question like this it will be of immeasurable assistance to those who will try and help you if you post your distro, version, and arch(like F8-64bit).

I am going to guess that it is an issue of trying to use the 2.4.X kernel.
