Description Phil Mayers 2000-07-06 06:40:36 EDT
The 2.2.14-5.0 kernel-headers spec file has this:

But in the spec file for the 2.2.16-3, around line 691:

mkdir asm
/usr/src/linux-%{kversion}/include/asm-sparc/BuildASM /usr/include/asm

This should be:

mkdir asm
/usr/src/linux-%{kversion}/include/asm-sparc/BuildASM /usr/include

The /usr/include/asm directory will *NOT* be built, and various packages 
cannot build (openssh 2+, etc.) without the appropriate headers present. 
This is a pretty poor show really guys! :o)

Machine is:

uname -a

Linux hostname 2.2.16-3 #1 Mon Jun 19 20:41:27 EDT 2000 sparc64 unknown
Comment 1 Phil Mayers 2000-07-06 06:46:29 EDT
Oops - the first lines should read:

The 2.2.14-5.0 kernel-headers had this working.

But in the spec file for the 2.2.16-3... <and so on>

Comment 2 hebert 2000-07-11 14:00:43 EDT
also, 
/boot/kernel.h is not created 
only /boot/kernel.h-2.2.16 is
so I had to copy it under the name of /boot/kernel.h
