Segregated Dynamic Linking (keeping the peace between incompatible dependencies)
Speaker: Vivek Das Mohapatra
Track: Cloud and containers
Type: Long talk (45 minutes)
Room: Yushan (玉山) Live Stream
Time: Aug 02 (Thu), 16:30
Using a library without being exposed to any of its dependencies & without requiring recompilation of the binary that pulls it in.
The goal is to improve portability of programs that are distributed with runtimes (cf flatpak) but which still need access to some libraries from the host (eg libGL) without requiring recompilation of either the host libraries or the application+runtime.
