Bug Fix Advisory glibc bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:1488-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-11-28
Last updated on: 2011-11-28
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated glibc packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 5.

The glibc packages provide the standard C and standard math libraries used by
multiple programs on the system. Without these libraries, the Linux system
cannot function properly.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, the dynamic loader generated an incorrect ordering for
initialization according to the ELF specification. Initialization routines for
depended-upon objects were not being called before the objects, which depended
on them, were being initialized. This manifested itself only when initializing
compiled C++ libraries whose global initialization depended upon the global
initialization of data in other libraries which they were linked against at link
time, generating a DT_NEEDED entry. With this update, implementation of the
topological sort algorithm for dependency resolution has been fixed, and
functions for initialization and termination are now ordered correctly.
(BZ#745487)

All users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.
