Confused about /usr/bin/nm, linker, and stripped libs



These days rpm installs most libs stripped of their symbols, which is fine as it makes them smaller and presumably load faster.

But how does the linker resolve symbols against stripped libs? And if the linker can do it, why can't /usr/bin/nm ?
