Just curious



Can anyone provide a rational explanation why so many
linux distros (fedora among them) ship by default with
both the prelinker and the kernel address space randomizer
enabled?

Aren't they just a wee bit mutually contradictory?

The prelinker spending hours running cron jobs to try
and make firefox load 1 millisecond faster by having
the shared libs already relocated to a known base
address.

And the randomizer trying to keep any shared lib from
ever being loaded at the same base address twice in a row.
