Description Matthew Gauthier 1999-12-17 11:16:32 UTC
On redhat 6.1/intel linking against any of the ext2 libs fails when
using the -l<libname> switch, but succedes when the full path is passed
on the cc command line. ie,

gcc obj1.o obj2.o /lib/ # works
gcc obj1.o obj2.o -le2p              # fails

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-12-17 15:16:59 UTC
Make sure that you have e2fsprogs-devel installed. If you are not installing
from a package, make sure that you have run ldconfig. The actual file that
should be used by the linker when given -le2p is /usr/lib/ created
by either the package or the ldconfig command.
