Description Neil Horman 2008-02-18 19:10:05 EST
Description of problem:
dmsetup.static appears to be removed from rawhide.  That utility (specifically
as a static utility is required for kdump to build a functional initramfs for
many/most systems).  Please return it to use, or split it in to a
device-mapper-static package, as kdump will not function without it.

Comment 1 Alasdair Kergon 2008-02-18 19:48:19 EST
All the static binaries were removed as I understood it was no longer policy to
include them.  I checked package dependencies and no kdump dependency showed up.

Can you not change kdump to cope without it?
Comment 2 Neil Horman 2008-02-18 22:09:41 EST
kdumps dependency is likely on the package, not the specific binary, althrough
it appears it should be.

I'd be happy to entertain ideas about coping without dmsetup.static, but I don't
see how I can do without it, given that I don't have space to include all of
glibc in my initramfs.  If you have other thoughts, I'd happily listen to them.

closing as per bz 433395
