#1439 closed defect (fixed)

smartmontools compile fails with "undefined reference to `__stack_chk_guard'"

Reported by: edso Owned by: Christian Franke
Priority: minor Milestone: Release 7.3
Component: all Version: 7.2
Keywords: Cc:


the configure stackprotection detection

might wrongly detect support where there is none.

looks like a change as described here

would prevent that.

thanks!.. ede

Milestone: undecided
Version: 7.2

Smartmontools 7.2 already includes the proposed fix, see r5032.

If this is not effective in your environment this is possibly because the current check does not actually generate calls to __stack_chk_*() functions.

If possible, please test:


    772772    AC_MSG_CHECKING([whether $CXX supports $option])
    773773    save_CXXFLAGS=$CXXFLAGS
    774774    CXXFLAGS="$CXXFLAGS $option"
    775     AC_LINK_IFELSE([AC_LANG_PROGRAM()], [res=yes], [res=no; CXXFLAGS=$save_CXXFLAGS])
     775    AC_LINK_IFELSE([AC_LANG_PROGRAM([[int i;]],
     776      [[volatile char buf[10]; buf[i] = 0;]])],
     777      [res=yes], [res=no; CXXFLAGS=$save_CXXFLAGS])
    776778    AC_MSG_RESULT([$res])
    777779  done

sorry Christian,

still detects it as working s.b.

I don't see any autoconf, autoreconf or ./ in the above protocol. Did you actually rebuild the configure script?

If GNU autotools are not available, please test whether this program could be build manually using the same compiler:

int i;

int main()
  volatile char buf[10];
  buf[i] = 0;
  return 0;

Try with and without -fstack-protector option.

sorry. not a Make/Autoconf? guru myself.

you are right. manually running 'autoreconf' in a patched source dir solves this.

as long as it's unreleased how would you suggest to apply the fix to a buildroot package like the one in Freetz-NG?
i'd assume patching the configure script or?

thx!.. ede

Sorry, I'm not familiar with this build system. Various .../make/*/*.mk files there use this:


This possibly runs autoreconf after the patch is applied.
