Description of problem:
Yaboot needs static library of ext2fs

Once you add it I will change the BuildRequires in yaboot from e2fsprogs-devel to e2fsprogs-static

Sorry about that, in bug 545144, Michael looked but thought that no Fedora packages required static libs, so I removed them.

I'll look into making a -static package for yaboot.

My package testdisk is using the shared libs. But on my website I also provides static binaries of TestDisk & PhotoRec for Linux users using non-Fedora distributions. Without this package, it can't create static version
anymore. The library is used by TestDisk to list the content of recovered ext2/ext3/ext4 partition or by PhotoRec to carve files from the free/unallocated space of the filesystem.

Ok thanks, just curious.  I'll try to get this taken care of soon.
Comment 5 Eric Sandeen 2010-06-02 14:58:10 EDT
Requested FESCO approval for the -static package:

Comment 6 Eric Sandeen 2010-06-02 16:24:14 EDT
Ok, an e2fsprogs-static subpackage should appear shortly in rawhide & koji.

Is this needed for F13?
Comment 7 Christophe GRENIER 2010-06-03 01:39:51 EDT
Life would be easier if an e2fsprogs-static subpackage was available for F13. Otherwise I will install the rawhide package and be carefull during futur update...

Thank you. Yaboot build is now ok.
I'm not going to (re)build yaboot on f-13.
