ksplice : does not adhere to Static Library Packaging Guidelines
Last modified: 2010-07-06 13:42:01 EDT
If a library you depend on only provides a static version your package can link against it provided that you BuildRequire the *-static subpackage. Packagers in such a situation should be aware that if a shared library becomes available, that you should adjust your package to use the shared library.
Bacause there are general issues to build ksplice to build agains kernel-2.6.32, I would like to defer this issue until the gneral issues are fixed.
