Date: Tue, 14 Aug 2012 14:29:16 +0400 From: Solar Designer <solar@...nwall.com> To: owl-dev@...ts.openwall.com Subject: rpm.spec change for new binutils Vasily, Your addition of: export LDFLAGS="-lrpmio -lpopt -lrpmdb -lrpm" to rpm.spec, while needed for building with new binutils, has the unfortunate side-effect of requiring the rpm-devel subpackage from a previous build of rpm to be installed for the new build of rpm to succeed. Without rpm-devel installed, ./configure fails with "C compiler cannot create executables". Additionally, a concern is that something may actually be getting picked up from the previous rpm build via its rpm-devel - requiring one more rebuild of rpm to have a fully new build of it. Until the binutils upgrade, rpm-devel was not required for Owl builds, and it is not currently installed into our OpenVZ templates (which are meant to be sufficient for Owl rebuilds). Can you try to come up with a better fix for this, please? What are other distros doing? Thanks, Alexander
