Description Nigel Horne 2010-08-15 19:36:24 UTC
Description of problem:
There is no libpcap-devel-static package, so it is not possible to use mudflap to diagnose programs built using libpcap, since you should use "-static" with "-fmudflap".

14:1.0.0-5.20091201git117cb5.fc13

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  rpm -qa | fgrep libpcap-devel-static
2.
3.
  
Actual results:
Nothing

Expected results:

Comment 1 Miroslav Lichvar 2010-08-16 08:19:02 UTC
Static libraries should be included only in exceptional circumstances, please see

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines#Packaging_Static_Libraries

I don't think including a static libpcap only for debugging purposes would meet the guideline.

Comment 2 Nigel Horne 2010-08-16 08:32:32 UTC
Please would you explain to me how I can run mudflap on my program which uses libpcap?

Comment 3 Miroslav Lichvar 2010-08-16 08:41:11 UTC
Download libpcap srpm, compile the sources and use libpcap.a as needed.

Comment 4 Nigel Horne 2010-08-16 08:45:22 UTC
Ouch :-(
