Description of problem:
In the gfs-build.spec file, the 3rd line of the BuildSistina routine
This line requires to have all flavours of the kernel (smp, hugemem,
etc.) installed on the build system, only to have this particular
symlink installed, while the following line would not have this
limitation and works identically:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Note: problem also applies to GFS-6.0.0-7.
Yes, since the kernel tree is copied, an mrproper is done, and the appropriate
config file is selected, the above advice would work while allowing fewer
This has been fixed in GFS > 6.0.0-7
Well, not really fewer steps, fewer dependencies: the symlinks in
/lib/modules of all kernel flavors (within the same version-release)
point the the exact same tree in /usr/src ;-).
