Description of problem:
Upstream v0.6.1 is available
Libstatgrab is no longer used by default removing all the dependency pain around it for fedora/epel.
I've done a test-build with the new release (with libstatgrab disabled) and it seems to work fine.
Not sure if libstatgrab gives us anything that isn't available otherwise or if it's only needed for cross platform support.
built for rawhide:
Not sure either regarding libstatgrab, but thank you for jumping on it.
bwm-ng-0.6.1-2.fc23 has been submitted as an update to Fedora 23. https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2016-9f76cf19e6

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
I believe perl-Unix-Statgrab still needs bwm-ng to have libstatgrab support. I have a local mockbuild for rawhide (f25) that built fine. I need to do some more testing and investigation.
I'll put a --with-libstatgrab version on COPR soon.
If you have issues with libstatgrab on your distro/arch perhaps we can create a bwm-ng-libstatgrab option package?
epel6 build failed for libstatgrab due to missing automake macro, so not provided in COPR.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 24 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 2 (two) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 24. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
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.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 24 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, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
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.
Fedora 24 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2017-08-08. Fedora 24 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
