Description Michael S. Tsirkin 2010-07-13 11:18:57 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #540117 +++

Description of problem:
no static version of libdwarf is provided in fedora 11 or up.
libdwarf is used by perf tool kernel performance
analysis utility.

Ability to build a static version of this binary
is important because developer would often
use it to analyse performance for non-fedora
or embedded systems, which might not have
necessary libraries.


Additional info:
Fedora guidelines say:
       In general, packagers are strongly encouraged not to ship static libs
       unless a compelling reason exists.
For me, the ability to create a portable perf binary that
I can copy around linux systems qualifies as a compelling reason.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '11'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:

Cloned to F13: can libdwarf-static be added there as well?
