dlopen on Linux

I have dynamic_cast problem on Linux when I use icebox. According to GCC info (, shared libraries that use dynamic_cast must be loaded with RTLD_GLOBAL flag. In my particular case, exception handling fails unless I recomplie Ice with such modification.

    Hi Garry,

    Thanks for the bug report! You're right, it should be RTLD_GLOBAL; it will be fixed in the next patch release (2.1.1).
