Description Jørgen Thomsen 2005-01-06 22:49:55 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:

Description of problem:
I noticed by manually running the patches in the package, that they 
produced 171 FAILED messages along with a lot of succesfull patches. 
I also noticed, that at least one failed patch file definitely did 
not have the linux-2.6.9 file as its source. After studying more how 
to compile the source I succesfully ran the steps, but I am wondering 
if the failing patches were just ignored and if I now have an 
unstable kernel in an undefined state not equal to 2.6.9-1.681_FC3 
with my tiny change of one variable.

BTW as mentioned in another report: a HOWTO compile document is 
highly needed with the source.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
src RPM for 2.6.9-1.681_FC3

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run patches of the src RPM manually 

Actual Results:  many FAILED messages

Expected Results:  all success

I don't know what you did, but you're doing something wrong.
I've done hundreds of local builds without error, and the build system
wouldn't spit out binary rpm's if something went wrong in the patching

He probably was trying to patch manually, and it failed because one
patch relies upon another.
