Description David Woodhouse 2008-04-17 15:05:18 UTC
+++ 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.

This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".

Comment 3 RHEL Product and Program Management 2010-10-22 18:59:22 UTC
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated in the
current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to address this
request at this time. Red Hat invites you to ask your support
representative to propose this request, if appropriate and relevant,
in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Comment 4 Ondrej Vasik 2011-02-18 09:26:23 UTC
RHEL-4.9 was the last RHEL-4 regular update. As RHEL-4 now targets only
security fixes, closing this bugzilla WONTFIX. Fix was already done in RHEL-5.
