The package is slurm and the issue is their plugins. It's a deep architectural problem unfortunately,To summarize the issue briefly: When designing a plugin system, the services a plugin providesought not depend on the environment that loads it. That is not the case for slurm. Their pluginscontain symbols that refer back to the program that loads them. Suppose you have a plugin P loaded by programs A and B. Slurm's plugins often contain symbols a in A and b in B. When program A loads plugin P, the symbols b remain unresolved. When program B loads plugin P, the symbols a remain unresolved. I have spent hours supplying complex patches for them to "harden" and meet the bind now requirement,They acknowledge the problem but do not have enough customers complaining about it yet. Slurm issoftware deployed in large HPC research centers typically (hundred, thousands or more nodes).

Please tell us the name of the packages, and some indication of why the package does not work with BIND_NOW. Having specific information might help to identify and understand a more-general situation. _______________________________________________ devel mailing list -- email@example.com To unsubscribe send an email to devel-le...@lists.fedoraproject.org
