Description Flags
Optimization variable adjustment to enable RPM_OPT_FLAGS handling none

Description Moritz Barsnick 2000-09-14 09:44:50 UTC
ppp (latest: ppp-2.4.0b2-2) does not honor the RPM_OPT_FLAGS. There is a
slight modification in ppp-2.3.11-make.patch which adds "$(RPM_OPT_FLAGS)"
to COPTS in ppp-2.3.10/pppstats/Makefile.linux, but this is not the way to
go anyway. Rather just call 'make' as 'make COPTS="$RPM_OPT_FLAGS'.
Furthermore, there are many more Makefiles in the ppp package.

I am providing a patch which moves all the CC optimization parameters into
"COPTS" variables, and allows for calling 'make COPTS="$RPM_OPT_FLAGS'.

(Other observations: ppp-2.3.11-make.patch is actually against 2.3.10

Comment 2 Moritz Barsnick 2000-09-14 09:55:35 UTC
Sorry, meant to say ppp-2.3.11-7. Patch applies against 2.4.0, which is current,
and works with older and newer kernels. (To be tested of course. :->) The patch
applies nicely on 2.3.11 as well.

Comment 3 Thomas Woerner 2004-08-13 09:24:05 UTC
Please verify this with a newer version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux or Fedora
Core and reopen it against the new version if it still occurs.

Closing as "not a bug" for now.
