Lintian Reports

I binary-has-unneeded-section

All reports of binary-has-unneeded-section for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The binary or shared library is stripped, but still contains a section that is not useful. You should call strip with --remove-section=.comment --remove-section=.note to remove the .note and .comment sections.

dh_strip will do this automatically for you, but install -s will not because it calls strip without any arguments.

Severity: wishlist, Certainty: certain

Check: binaries, Type: binary, udeb

Emitted (non-overridden): 36, overridden: 6, total: 42

The package names link to the relevant maintainer page and the corresponding report for the source package. The links go to the full maintainer report page, which includes info and experimental tags and overridden tags, rather than the default page that shows only errors and warnings.
