User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040120

Description of problem:
Build of binary packages fails, declaring FC2 to be an "Unsupported
OS/Release combination !"

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install FC2 with "[] Everything" package selection.
2.Run "rpmbuild --rebuild hwcrypto-1.0-15.src.rpm"

Actual Results:  This is a snippet of output, seen when building
binary package:

+ make -C API
make: Entering directory `/home/BUILD/hwcrypto-1.0/Host/API'
. ./make.conf ; make target
Unsupported OS/Release combination !
Platform = Linux
Release  = 2.6.5-1.358
Compiler = gcc
make: *** [default] Error 1
make: Leaving directory `/home/BUILD/hwcrypto-1.0/Host/API'

Expected Results:  Binary package should build without error.

Comment 1 Randy Zagar 2004-10-05 23:48:04 EDT
bcm5820 component of hwcrypto-1.0-15 (FC2) also has problems with
/usr/include/linux/tqueue.h and /usr/include/linux/wrapper.h. 
Internal  kernel task scheduling seems to have moved away from task
queue struct tq_struct and is now, in 2.6.8, using a different
structure "work_struct".  There are a couple places in the kernel
source where someone does a "#define tq_struct work_struct", but it is
unclear to me exactly how to fake out the tq_struct semantics under
the new system.

BTW, there's a whole <deleted>-load of bcm5820 cards for sale on eBay
for under $50 if you need hardware to test with.
