Description Bertil Askelid 2004-08-07 19:55:18 EDT
Description of problem:

In the following places there needs to be soft links added to allow
for compilation on an i686 architecture:

/usr/src/linux-*/arch/i686 -> <same dir>i386
/lib/modules/{build,kernel}/arch/i686 -> <same dir>/i386

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.compile something against the running kernel source, like vmware
Actual results:

compilation fails due to not finding 'i686' directory

Expected results:

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2004-08-08 03:56:16 EDT

really broken.

(in addition usr/src/linux-*/ can't be used for building modules
against the kernel)
