2.2.94 Problem


I'm trying to actually use the library instead of just compiling it
and running make check.

I don't really know what I'm doing so I'm just throwing this onto the
list in case someone finds it interesting.

Apologies if this is irrelevant to glibc.

The problem is that a statically linked bash shell (compiled on a
glibc-2.2.5/gcc-3.2 system) segfaults immediately when executed inside a
chroot env with 2.2.94 installed.

The steps I'm taking:-

 * compiling a bunch of statically linked stuff (compiler, tools, utils,
   shell etc) and installing them into a prefix
 * chroot'ing into that prefix then proceed to build up the rest of the
   system by starting with glibc

Those steps have worked perfectly for me for years.

This is i686-pc-linux-gnu on kernel 2.4.19 using 2.4.19 headers.

The starting (host) system is:-
glibc-2.2.5 (with bits from 2.2.6) and --enable-kernel=current

The versions for the chroot system are:-
glibc-2.2.94 (with __hidden_dot_def1 fix otherwise it wouldn't build)
gcc-3.2.1 cvs

It happens with bash-2.05a or 2.05b. I include a trace below but it is
pretty well useless.
