Ibinary-has-unneeded-section

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.109.24. That is the most recent version we know about.

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.
