Description Aleksandar Milivojevic 2004-08-27 21:31:57 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7)

Description of problem:
I've installed kernel-sourcecode package, cutomized it, and run "make
rpm" to build new kernel rpm.  I spotted two minor things that could
be improved.

"Make rpm" used vanila mkspec script to generate spec file.  This spec
file isn't customized for Fedora, but is rather general.  It would be
nice if mkspec distributed in Fedora's kernel-sourcecode would
generate spec file based on the spec file used to build actual kernel
package (with all postinstall/preremove parts that are used to build
initrd image and other stuff).

The version of generated rpm is missing "-" between version and
revision.  For example, it generates "kernel-", but
really should be generating "kernel-2.6.5-1.358custom-2" or maybe
"kernel-2.6.5-1.358custom2".  AFAIK, Linus still hasn't released
2.6.51 ;-)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -i kernel-sourcecode-ver.rpm
2. cd /usr/src/linux-ver
3. make rpm

BTW, one other small thing I forgot.  Packages were created as i386
instead of i686 in the name (rpmbuild was called with that option from

Guess this is cosmetic thing that nobody really cares about.  No point
in keeping it open.
