Description Bernd Kischnick 2002-11-27 16:44:33 UTC

Description of problem:
glib2-devel-2.0.6-2.*.rpm doesn't contain static libraries.
Perhaps they should be added for the sake of other RPMs like pam or initscripts,
which then could use glib2 instead of glib.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
rpm -ql glib2-devel | grep "\.a$"

Actual Results:  no output

Expected Results:  

Additional info:

adding "--enable-static" plus the %files entry in the spec file works without
any problem. see attached patch to the spec file.
