Does that answer your question ? Or did I miss the point ?
Then why was Mark unable to build Yaboot if the fixed version is
in the archive? If it's just a matter of building in a clean
sid chroot, why wasn't that done in the first place as I suggested?
That's probably because I am still using Jessie as a base environment
rather than going through the process of setting up a sid-chroot in
order just to build yaboot-1.3.17.
The main omission from e2fslibs compared to e2fslibs1.41-dev is that the
latest version doesn't build the static versions of the libraries (the
ld line adds -lext2fs and so it's libext2fs.a in
is the magic that allows yaboot to build when comparing with
Now it could be that even adding a static build to e2fslibs still
requires a few extra fixups to yaboot similar to
but that shouldn't be too tricky.
I should add that probably grub is a better long term solution, I'm just
looking for a suitable band-aid to get the latest powerpc ports image
running under QEMU again.
