Please update to the newer version of patchelf in bionic

Bug #1753482 reported by Sergio Schvezov on 2018-03-05
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
patchelf (Ubuntu)

Bug Description


 * New architecture support in xenial where the current version has FTBS e.g.; armhf, s390x
 * The new code adds logic to reorder Program Headers appropriately.
 * New feature (specific flag, --no-default-lib) to disable LD_LIBRARY_PATH

[Test Case]

 * Use snapcraft's test suite which is a heavy user of patchelf.
 * snapcraft's test suite on the new architectures
 * patchelf's integrated tests
 * exploratory testing of patchelf.

[Regression Potential]

 * Minimal possibility of patching to break on obscure binaries
 * 0.9-1 has already been available on artful and bionic with no bugs reported
 * No deb dependes on patchelf, snapcraft installs patchelf during runtime
   during runtime due to the FTBS. This would change that.

[Other Info]

 * NixOS upstream
 * Current version in artful and bionic: 0.9-1
 * Current version in xenial: 0.8-4. With FTBS for armhf and s390x
