I can understand relinking would be necessary when upgrading glibc. Some package likely do not to require relinking, some do, some I am not sure about:
- upgrading glibc -> I suppose relinking required
- upgrading vim -> I suppose no relinking required
- upgrading gzip -> I'm not sure
- upgrading kernel -> I'm not sure
Does anyone have a list, or can anyone point me to a list to what libraries Oracle actually links? I am not an Oracle DBA, so I am clueless about the Oracle linking procedure. I am not even sure I actually understand what Oracle is doing during the relinking: it's not really a common practice in binary software to do it's own linking after install, is it?
Anyway, to make a long story short: I have a couple of RHEL boxes, that I need to apply some patches to. Most boxes run Oracle and I am wondering what patches would require relinking and what would not. A list as exhaustive as possible would be nice :)
