TODO: Janitorial cleanup - upstream should default StaticNeedsPicForShared YES
Last modified: 2005-11-30 05:22:19 EST
/* This is YES in xfree86.cf for all architectures but x86, and we need it
* on x86 or else KDE/GNOME shared libs and others that link to them will
* not be too happy.
* Update: This is needed on x86_64 also as the xfree86.cf file settings get
* ignored. I've assumed they all get ignored and made it all-arch instead.
#define StaticNeedsPicForShared YES
Reminder to self to do this.
Added xorg-x11-6.8.2-config-StaticNeedsPicForShared.patch to
our 6.8.2 packaging, and submitted patch for CVS head upstream:
Removed the patch previously applied, and reverted back to hard coding
StaticNeedsPicForShared YES in host.def for 6.8.x RHEL4 builds to avoid
Setting status to "RAWHIDE" as X11R7 is in rawhide now, and all of the
libraries are supplied in shared form nowadays, plus we no longer ship
the static libraries, and we no longer use Imake to build X. So this
is more or less resolved.
