Description Xake 2011-04-24 15:30:52 UTC
Currently revdep-rebuild scans /usr/lib/debug for broken libraries.
However residing inside of /usr/lib/debug are *.debug files, which are identified as libraries, but does not work or act like libraries, resulting in revdep-rebuild trying to run ldd on them, which fails due to those files not being neither executable or real libraries.

So in the end, scanning /usr/lib/debug is just waste of IO and CPU and time.
Please mask that directory as default.

On hardened-kernel it also triggers many messages in dmesg:

Comment 2 Brian Dolbec gentoo-dev 2012-04-28 16:25:51 UTC
Ah, both of you did not mention the version of gentoolkit.  The latest version of ~ gentoolkit has the new python version of revdep-rebuild.  Can you test if that one also looks at debug files as libs?
Comment 3 Marcin Mirosław 2012-04-28 19:57:01 UTC
I meant last stable version:)
Now i tried and still the same:

Comment 5 Dyweni 2018-10-18 01:24:15 UTC

Using =app-portage/gentoolkit-0.4.2-r1 and

This is still scanning these files, and now that I've upgraded to glibc-2.26, getting hundreds of segfaults in dmesg, similar to:  "[54721]: segfault at 4 ip 00000000f7fab5b4 sp 00000000ffcc2cd0 error 4 in[f7fa0000+25000]"

In the past, I tried the python version, but it wasn't detecting properly and don't remember anymore the reasons why.

I prefer to stay with the .sh script.

If you have glibc built with -g or -ggdb in CFLAGS then maybe you can get a backtrace from a core dump as described here:
