Fedora if layout code needs to re-prelink some library, make sure all libraries that depend on it are re-prelinked too (#140081)

Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 3
Name        : prelink
Version     : 0.3.3
Release     : 0.fc3
Summary     : An ELF prelinking utility
Description :
The prelink package contains a utility which modifies ELF shared libraries
and executables, so that far less relocations need to be resolved at runtime
and thus programs come up faster.


* Tue Nov 23 2004 Jakub Jelinek <> 0.3.3-0.fc3

- if layout code needs to re-prelink some library, make sure
  all libraries that depend on it are re-prelinked too (#140081)
- add several more checks before deciding it is ok to prelink a binary
  (even if another bug like #140081 was in, these checks should hopefully
  catch it and refuse to (re-)prelink the binary)
- added new PRELINK_NONRPM_CHECK_INTERVAL variable to /etc/prelink,
  defaulting to 7 days.  Prelink nightly job will not do anything
  if that interval has not elapsed since last prelinking and
  and the rpm database has not been modified since that prelinking.
  This is useful if you rely on rpm/up2date/yum/apt-rpm for library
  and binary updates.  If you combine it with other means (installs
  from source, tarballs etc.), you probably want to
- update prelink man page (#126468)
