Description Jeremy Katz 2007-09-06 17:22:55 EDT
From pulseaudio-0.9.7-0.8 -> pulseaudio-0.9.7-0.10, the packages grew by a very
significant amount thus making things not fit for live CDs.  

It looks like this is because libpulsecore is now getting statically linked into
every module rather than a dynamic link.  That means that every module is ending
up with the 322k shared library included within it.
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2007-09-06 17:32:15 EDT
Due to http://www.pulseaudio.org/changeset/1755

Even if libpulsecore doesn't have a stable API, it's still worth installing a
shared lib.  Just don't include a .so link or any headers and people will at
least have to try to use it.  And/or include it in /usr/lib/pulse-0.9 and link
things with an rpath. 

But just linking things statically is far far worse.

It's all libtool's fault.

Fixed in the Rawhide commit I did today in the early morning CEST.
