Description Bruce Allen 2004-04-23 04:31:38 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.2)

Description of problem:
I would like to rebuild the kernel rpms (particularly kernel-source)
using rpmbuild -bb. This dies partway through the build of the binary

My machine is fairly stock RH9.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
(1) download kernel-2.4.20-31.9.src.rpm

(2) rpm -ivh kernel-2.4.20-31.9.src.rpm

(3) cd /usr/src/redhat/SPECS

(4) rpmbuild -bb kernel-2.4.spec

Actual Results:  This dies with:

* Library routines
zlib compression support (CONFIG_ZLIB_DEFLATE) [M/n/y/?]
*** End of Linux kernel configuration.
*** Check the top-level Makefile for additional configuration.
*** Next, you must run 'make dep'.
+ make -s -j 1 dep
scripts/mkdep.c:51: `PATH_MAX' undeclared here (not in a function)
scripts/mkdep.c: In function `add_path':
scripts/mkdep.c:237: `PATH_MAX' undeclared (first use in this function)
scripts/mkdep.c:237: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
scripts/mkdep.c:237: for each function it appears in.)
scripts/mkdep.c:237: warning: unused variable `resolved_path'
/usr/include/sys/stat.h: At top level:
scripts/mkdep.c:51: storage size of `cwd' isn't known
make: *** [scripts/mkdep] Error 1
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.56744 (%build)
RPM build errors:
    Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.56744 (%build)

Expected Results:  Find binary .rpm files in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i686

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
