Description David Woodhouse 2008-04-17 11:03:19 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #442904 +++

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.

Fixed in all newer RHELs. (or at least filed a bug)
