Description David Woodhouse 2008-04-17 10:58:27 EDT
We don't build yaboot completely from source -- in versions <= 1.3.13, the
"source" tarball contains a prebuilt copy of libext2fs.a, which we were using.

Version 1.3.14 builds against the system's static libext2fs.a. That also
concerns me a little -- yaboot is far from being a standard environment; we
build with -nostdlib etc.  But it seems to work.
Comment 1 David Woodhouse 2008-04-17 11:06:59 EDT
We've moved on to 1.3.14 in the devel/ branch already, but I think it's best not
to update to 1.3.14 in Fedora 9 at this stage. Please could we have an F-9
branch to fix this in.
Comment 2 David Woodhouse 2008-04-17 11:08:23 EDT
(branched from the yaboot-1_3_13-11_fc9 tag into F-9 if at all possible; if not
I'm sure we'll cope)
Comment 3 Kevin Fenzi 2008-04-17 12:58:25 EDT
cvs done. 
I think it should have branched from devel head... hopefully that works. 
Comment 4 David Woodhouse 2008-04-18 06:18:56 EDT
yaboot-1.3.13-12.fc9 built and tested on various platforms. Just needs tagging
for f9-final.
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2008-04-22 13:50:58 EDT
Verified. A "rm -f lib/libext2fs.a" would make it really obvious if it broke
later, but that's just an optimization.
Comment 6 David Woodhouse 2008-04-22 14:33:40 EDT
Next build of yaboot will be 1.3.14 anyway, which doesn't have lib/ext2fs.a. For
F9 at this stage of the game, however, it seemed saner to build another 1.3.13.
