Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Building from the SRPM version creates an rpm with striped libraries
From: Ashley Pittman (ashley_at_[hidden])

This is a standard rpm feature although like most things it can be disabled.

According to this mail and it's replies the two %defines below will prevent striping and the building of debuginfo rpms.

%define debug_package %{nil}
%define __strip /bin/true

That's okay, but for debugging via TotalView it creates a version with the openmpi .so files stripped and we can't gain control of the processes when launched via mpirun -tv. I've verified this with my own build of a 1.4.1 rpm which I then installed and noticed the same behavior that the user reports. I was hoping to give them some advice as to how to avoid the stripping, as it appears that the actual build of those libraries is done with -g and everything looks fine. But I can't figure out in the build (from the log file I created) just where that stripping takes place, or how to get around it if need be. The best guess I have is that it may be happening at the very end when an rpm-tmp file is executed, but that file has disappeared so I don't really know what it does. I thought it might be apparent in the spec file, but it's certainly not apparent to me! Any help or advice would be appreciated.
