Hi all,

Last week I reported a crash of ld when trying to build the Windows version of ZDoom 2.1.7 under Linux with Winelib.

Nick Clifton managed to reproduce and fix the crash. Many thanks to him again for this! He reported the following about the cause of the crash:

With the patch he supplied to me (should be included in the latest binutils snapshot) I can compile and link ZDoom flawlessly, but when I try to run the executable, it stops directly with the following error message:

Inconsistency detected by ld.so: ../sysdeps/i386/dl-machine.h: 554: elf_machine_rel_relative: Assertion `((reloc->r_info) & 0xff) == 8' failed!

Nick told me the following about this error:

At first I thought this could be an Ubuntu specific problem, so I tried openSUSE 10.2. The problem persists there, so it's not Ubuntu specific.
Any suggestions what can be done about this?
