Description Andrei Kovacs 2005-01-08 10:33:22 EST
Description of problem:
With the updated kernel 2.6.9-1.724_FC3, you can no longer compile
lufs (which is needed by captive-ntfs) due to a missing export of
kernel symbol "kill_proc_info". Te export is removed in the kernel
patch "linux-2.6.9-exports.patch".

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download and install kernel-2.6.9-1.724_FC3.i368.rpm and
2. Download and install captive-ntfs
and complete "captive-install-aquire". 
3. Try to mount a ntfs filesystem. This is where captive-ntfs tries to
compile lufs and fails because of the missing kernel export.
Actual results:
The NTFS filesystem is not mounted.

Expected results:
The NTFS filesystem mounted.

Additional info:
By a little modification of the patch to not remove "kill_proc_info"
and a recompile of the kernel, everything works fine.
Comment 1 Dave Jones 2005-01-08 13:38:28 EST
this went away upstream. If you need this to come back, you (or the
lufs people) will need to convince linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org
