Description Gergan Penkov 2005-07-29 08:32:52 UTC
There is the following problem, the library /usr/lib/ does not
set the rpath/runpath tags for linking with mozilla or mozilla-firefox.
Expected readelf -d /usr/lib/|grep -E RUNPATH\|RPATH, should show
/usr/lib/mozilla or another corresponding path, in which the linked libraries
are to be found. This could probably lead to problems by dynamic resolution of
the libraries.
There is also a bug report about this in gnome-bugzilla
I'll attach a slightly modified version (patching not
and removing the other patches) of this patch, which resolves the issue.

This will set the rpath/runpath tags for /usr/lib/ to the
correct path of mozilla or mozilla-firefox-libraries.

The ebuild which uses this patch.
Comment 3 Gergan Penkov 2005-08-15 16:22:39 UTC
This bug is rendered invalid with the new mozilla and mozilla-firefox ebuilds,
which use the -Wl,-R linker directive in the pkg-config files.
