Comment 1 Michael Palimaka (kensington) gentoo-dev 2012-02-10 08:25:31 UTC
I found a potential patch ( but I am familiar with neither this type of link error, nor fuse, so I don't know how useful it is.
Comment 2 Alexander Tsoy 2012-06-22 09:55:37 UTC
Similar problem with currently stable fuse-2.8.6:

/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/4.6.3/../../../../x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld: error: symbol __fuse_exited has undefined version

Patch from (Extracted the Patch)

I have solved the Problem with the above Patch, added it to the fuse-2.9.3 ebuild and it compiles fine (glibc-2.19, gcc-4.9.2, binutils-2.24-r3 [gold])
Comment 7 Nuno Silva 2015-01-18 10:47:52 UTC
If this is indeed a duplicate of bug 445826, can someone please update the subject accordingly? Note that 445826 mentions a different error message...

Comment 10 Jaak Ristioja 2015-08-24 19:52:03 UTC
Any progress? The attached patch still seems to fix emerge of fuse 2.9.4.
Comment 11 om3i 2015-08-24 21:22:50 UTC
Adding -Wl,-fuse-ld=bfd to LDFLAGS also fixes buld.
Comment 12 Matt Whitlock 2015-08-25 00:22:51 UTC
Would invoking tc-ld-disable-gold[1] in src_configure() also work?

Me seems this isn't fix but only workarround for real problem.

In package.env I suppose, not globally. :)
Comment 15 Roman Gruber 2015-10-28 12:20:02 UTC
May I kindly ask the developers, who are in charge, why we can not fix this?

WE know it does not build with gold. There seems to be a fix.

Bug open, fix proposed from someone. I run into this for weeks on this new hardware. I did not bother to read the previous box emerge.log. I am quite sure, that this issue is well known since june or april 2015.

Ebuilds usually patch out invalid cflags, why not patch out in this case the gold-linker?

Frienldy reminder, please fix htis ebuild. Thank you

The status should be confirmed, if you need a build.log. I gladly provide emerge-info and build.log, if you really need that to get the bug as confirmed.
Comment 16 Fabio Scaccabarozzi 2016-04-07 20:37:53 UTC
I have opened a bug for this some time ago in fuse's upstream, see here:

I have asked the maintainer for inclusion of the patch. He has concerns that the patch might break fuse 2.x for some people, as he doesn't see the patch widely adopted by distros. He would rather either update the patch for fuse 3.x or version all the symbols with fuse 3.x, from what I understood. Currently, I don't know if there's any ETA for fuse 3.x.
Comment 17 Peter Asplund 2016-06-21 20:08:57 UTC
I agree that it would be great to get this fixed upstream, but since the bug has been around since 2012, perhaps we can get the suggested work-around at least _until_ the patch is accepted or until Gentoo decide to try applying the patch on the 2.x series. Workarounds are OK temporarily, aren't they?
Comment 18 jorgicio 2016-07-12 21:41:31 UTC
fuse-2.9.7 was bumped, and I have set gold as a default linker. However, fuse failed. so I found this patch:
Put it into /etc/portage/patches/sys-fs/fuse (if not exist, create that directory)
And then built it with that and went fine.
Comment 19 Fabio Scaccabarozzi 2016-07-12 22:03:52 UTC
@maintainers: please note that this:
is the URL of my /etc/portage git repository of my main desktop PC. :-)

That patch was refreshed against 2.9.5 in January and has been working perfectly to date. The original patch has been floating around for at least 1 year or more before I had it tracked.

Please note that a pull request was issued for this about 2 months ago, but devs decided against merging:
Comment 20 Tim Harder gentoo-dev 2016-07-18 22:47:57 UTC
I don't think this is necessary anymore with recent binutils (2.26) since they finally fixed base symbol versioning issues with the gold linker (;a=commit;h=b45e00b3ed40589af75b8a36a67905ae265a20f8) which is what I was waiting for.
