Description Helmut Schlattl 2004-11-18 12:30:40 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041001

Description of problem:
The standard Fedora kernel does not build, when the
"_enable_debug_packages" has been disabled manually in

May I suggest to use the attached patch to kernel-2.6.spec
in future kernel versions?
(The patch works with the current 2.6.9-1.667 - kernel.)
It would allow also those users to build a kernel, which
have disabled the building of the "debuginfo"-subpackages.



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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Comment "%_enable_debug_packages 1" in "/usr/lib/rpm/redhat/macros"
2.rpmbuild --rebuild kernel-2.6.9-1.667.src.rpm

Actual Results:  Error message of unpackaged files (all in /usr/lib/debug)

Comment 2 John Summerfield 2005-06-14 08:02:07 EDT
This problem (or one very like it) also exists in RHEL. I've not changed the rpm
files, instead I do it "properly" with this:
_topdir /var/local/el/rpms
%_builddir  %(mkdir /tmp/BUILD 2>/dev/null;echo /tmp/BUILD)
%_enable_debug_packages     0
%_build_arch        i686
%global __debug_package 0
%_target    i686-linux
%_target_cpu i686
%_host      i686-dingo-linux-gnu
%_arch      i686
#%_smp_mflags -j4
#%auxarches none
%_sourcedir %{_topdir}/SOURCES/%{name}-%{version}
%_sourcedir %{_topdir}/SOURCES/%{name}
%_rpmfilename   %%{NAME}-%%{VERSION}-%%{RELEASE}-dl3.90.%%{ARCH}.rpm
[summer@Bandicoot ~]$     
It's actually this line that produces the failure:
Comment 3 Dave Jones 2005-07-15 15:47:13 EDT
An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which
may contain a fix for your problem.   Please update to this new kernel, and
report whether or not it fixes your problem.

If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem
still occurs with the latest updates for that release, please change the version
field of this bug to 'fc4'.

Thank you.

I do not want to judge what the proper way is, but I personally prefer Dave's
From my point of view the issue is solved.
