Please report to upstream dump maintainer using the bug submission form
and guidelines found at:  http://dump.sourceforge.net
Comment 2 Stelian Pop 2002-11-15 05:56:40 EST
Well, this is not an upstream bug but a Red Hat packaging bug: --enable-qfa
option is missing from the %configure line in the spec file.

While we are at it, you should really update to the latest version of dump
(0.4b32), is has quite some improvements and bugfixes wrt 0.4b28.

Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2003-01-24 01:59:55 EST
Well actually... it looks like it is not a bug at all.   If the upstream
sources do not enable an option by default, then it is assumed that that
option is non-default behaviour.

That would make this neither an upstream bug, nor a Red Hat packaging bug.
It would make it a feature not enabled by default in upstream sources, nor
in Red Hat packaging.

This is thus a feature enhancement request more than a bug report.  Changing
the severity to Enhancement.

Feature enhancement made to dump-0.4b28-7 in rawhide
