Description Ville Skyttä 2011-01-13 18:53:58 UTC
Created attachment 473389 [details]
Let rpmbuild strip binaries, make build more verbose.

libtalloc 2.0.5-6 installs *.so.* as non-executable, which means rpmbuild will not strip them.  Fix attached, along with a change that makes the used CFLAGS visible in the build log.

Thanks for your help with this. I wasn't sure what was causing that to happen.

I will apply this fix to libtdb and libtevent as well, which are also suffering this issue, and I've reported upstream to Samba to fix the build system so it generates the libraries correctly.

Comment 4 Ville Skyttä 2011-01-14 16:51:23 UTC
"Correctly" might be a bit strong word to use when communicating with upstream - unless I'm mistaken, there's no actual need for shared objects to be executable in Linux.  The executability requirement is just a quirk in rpmbuild's debuginfo extractor (and I believe also some other things in rpmbuild that deal with shared objects).
