dmsetup.static removed from rawhide
Last modified: 2008-02-20 07:44:38 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.
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?
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.
