Description Harald Reindl 2013-01-08 08:58:49 EST
besides that it would be nice to have at least at koji a official 3.7.1 kernel the F18 package has a broken /usr/src/kernels/3.7.1-2.fc18.x86_64/include/linux/version.h

this is in fact a zero-byte-file which leads to have delete it for the needed symlink to get VMware Workstation running with 3.7.x
