Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8806) libhadoop.so: search java.library.path when calling dlopen
Date Fri, 14 Sep 2012 06:55:08 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8806?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13455613#comment-13455613

Colin Patrick McCabe commented on HADOOP-8806:

Alan, if you have a patch that actually fixes this, maybe you could share it with us?

After doing a little more research, it seems that {{rpath}} is not just for binaries.  Dynamic
libraries can have it too.  Although the man page for {{ld.so}} only mentions it in the context
of executables, it seems like it can embedded into shared libraries as well.  Combine that
with ${ORIGIN}, and at least in theory we could find {{libsnappy.so}} by using the path of

There's some discussion here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6323603/ld-using-rpath-origin-inside-a-shared-library-recursive

It's all a little undocumented and weird, and ${ORIGIN} is definitely Linux- (and maybe Solaris?)
specific, but it might be better than {{LD_LIBRARY_PATH}}.  Maybe.

> libhadoop calls {{dlopen}} to load {{libsnappy.so}} and {{libz.so}}.  These libraries
can be bundled in the {{$HADOOP_ROOT/lib/native}} directory.  For example, the {{-Dbundle.snappy}}
build option copies {{libsnappy.so}} to this directory.  However, snappy can't be loaded from
this directory unless {{LD_LIBRARY_PATH}} is set to include this directory.
> Should we also search {{java.library.path}} when loading these libraries?
