Description Jos Vos 2007-03-20 13:02:44 UTC
Description of problem:
In mkfs/Makefile the following link command is done while installing:

ln -f ${MKFS} ${sbindir}/${JADD}

Although this syntax would work for a symbolic link, it will not do what you
want for a hard link: ${JADD} in the *install root* will be hardlinked to
${MKFS} in the *build directory* (which fails when they are on different
filesystems!) and the result is that ${MKFS} and ${JADD} in ${sbindir} will not
be hardlinked.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
0.1.25-1.el5

Solution: change the link in mkfs/Makefile to:

ln -f ${sbindir}/${MKFS} ${sbindir}/${JADD}
