Bug Description

Moved to Ubuntu 16.04 from Ubuntu 14.04 and was doing some Test Driven Development where we began to override the "time" system call from glibc. Failed on Ubuntu 16.04 and I filed a report with the binutils Bugzilla.

https://sourceware.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=20159

(Turns out it was not dynamic linking that was the problem but GNU ld itself at link-time.)

They have since developed a patch and I want to get this into the binutils 1.26 line that is maintained for 16.04 so we can continue to properly develop software on this distribution.

Thanks!

- Paul Braman

Bug was fixed in 2.26 and trunk of project (see Bugzilla report linked). Hoping this gets into Ubuntu 16.04 soon so I can stop ignoring the error and continue developing tests that rely on a fixed version.

Hello Paul, or anyone else affected,

Accepted binutils into xenial-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/binutils/2.26.1-1ubuntu1~16.04 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested, and change the tag from verification-needed to verification-done. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed. In either case, details of your testing will help us make a better decision.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance!
