Description Daniel Keyhani 2011-11-28 11:58:30 UTC
Emerging dosemu fails on Hardened Gentoo due to an invalid relocation when building with a PIE-enabled compiler profile. Switching the compiler to a nopie-Profile (or setting LDFLAGS="-nopie") fixes the issue.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Hardened Gentoo
2. emerge -av "=app-emulation/dosemu-1.4.1_pre20091009"
Actual Results:  
x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-gcc -Wl,-O1 -Wl,--as-needed -Wl,-warn-common -rdynamic tools86.o -o tools86
/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/4.4.5/../../../../x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld: tools86.o: relocation R_X86_64_32 against `.rodata.str1.1' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
tools86.o: could not read symbols: Bad value
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Expected Results:  
Build succeeds. Maybe just add -nopie to LDLAGS?

Comment 1 wuodan 2012-12-23 17:19:09 UTC
I can confirme the issue, see attached log file "original.log".
The package compiles with -nopie (append-ldflags -nopie), see attachement "with-nopie.log".

But then it throws this:
* QA Notice: Package triggers severe warnings which indicate that it
*            may exhibit random runtime failures.
* /usr/include/bits/stdio2.h:285:2: warning: call to '__fread_chk_warn' declared with attribute warning: fread called with bigger size * nmemb than length of destination buffer

This originates from the first 'fread' statement in src/tools/tools86.c.

I think it should be:
  if (fread(&bsd,sizeof(bsd),1,f) != 1 ) {
instead of:
  if (fread(&bsd,sizeof(gnu),1,f) != 1 ) {

Attachement "with-nopie-and-fread-fix.log" contains the final log.
Attachement "dosemu-1.4.1_pre20091009.ebuild.patch" contains my fix for the ebuild.

Opened bug for the severe warning at upstream:
Comment 8 Sergei Trofimovich (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-08-05 09:53:26 UTC
It's a gentoo bug. Proper way to filter PIC flags is to use

    inherit flag-o-matic

    filter-flags -pic

filter-flags has special meaning on hardend toolchains and should add proper flags.

But current dosemu does not seem to need non-pic at all (at least here on amd64).
Although needs MPROTECT and RANDMMAP PaX features disables.

I've pushed the changes as:
>*dosemu-1.4.1_pre20130107-r2 (05 Aug 2013)
>  05 Aug 2013; Sergei Trofimovich <>
>  +dosemu-1.4.1_pre20130107-r2.ebuild, -dosemu-1.4.1_pre20130107-r1.ebuild:
>  Added basic hardened support (bug #392261 by Daniel Keyhani).

Please, give it a try. Thanks!
