Description Adam H. Pendleton 2003-01-21 23:25:28 UTC
Description of problem:
When using libtool and automake to link the RPM 4.1 libraries, full static
linkage is not possible.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
4.1-1.06

How reproducible:

100%

Steps to Reproduce:

In Makefile.am use:

program_LDADD = -lrpm
program_LDFLAGS = -all-static

Compiling this program produces the following error:

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lrpmdb-4.1
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

This occurs because there is indeed no static version of librpmdb-4.1.  There is
a shared version, but not static version.  Since /usr/lib/librpm.la depends on
librpmdb-4.1, there should be static versions of these libraries.


    
Actual results:

No linkage statically against rpm.

Expected results:

Static link to rpm libraries.


Additional info:

It should be possible to statically link against librpm.

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2003-01-22 10:18:21 UTC
Use -lrpmdb, not -lrpmdb-4.1.
