Comment 1 Christian Iseli 2007-04-11 06:45:10 UTC
Two questions:
1. why did you add me to the CC of this bug ?
2. what makes you think you absolutely need the static library ?

Comment 2 Hans de Goede 2007-04-11 07:16:13 UTC
We (Fedora) try to avoid static libs as much as possible. We do this up to the
point of not even shipping them, this is a feature not a bug.

Simply replace /usr/lib/libode.a with -lode in the Makefile should do the trick.

Also next time please provide some usefull information, like a link to the SRPM
for the package you are trying to build, IOW exact reproduction instructions for
you're problem. Maybe then I could have been of more help, but with the very
small amount of info currently provided I can only say this is not a bug, and
advice you to use -lode instead of trying to hardcode a path to libode.a in the

Closing ...

Comment 3 Benoît Marcelin 2007-04-11 11:29:39 UTC
To answer to Christian Iseli :
1 - because you are the latest packager of ode (on the changelog)
2 - during the %build of the rpm he what's two no-existing static library
(libode.a and an other) to make an object : gcc: /usr/lib64/libode.a: No such
file or directory

So I will try to do than Hans de Goede tell me

Sorry for the inconvenience and my poor english.
