Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 967214
collectd : does not adhere to Static Library Packaging Guidelines
Last modified: 2013-05-29 09:36:21 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.
There is no iproute-static.
We have a BuildRequires: iproute-devel, which has the static libnetlink.a library
Are you automatically opening these bug reports, or did you find this another way?
There's a virtual -static package as explained in the linked packaging guidelines:
# repoquery --whatprovides iproute-static
And yes, these tickets are opened/closed automatically by a highly experimental (albeit pretty safe) script. Current bug status:
Ah, sorry, I missed that.
Will fix... thanks.
