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
