Description Robin Green 2005-02-18 17:46:13 UTC
Description of problem: The file vmlinux is missing from kernel-xenU-devel, at
least in my build. This means that when I try to build the third-party module
loop-aes ( http://loop-aes.sf.net/ ) it fails at the modpost stage.

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

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install kernel-xenU-devel-2.6.10-1.1142_FC4.root
2. rpm -ql kernel-xenU-devel|grep vmlinux
Actual results:
is shown

Expected results:
vmlinux itself should be included

Additional info:
I had to rpmbuild from source RPM in order to unselect the Linux kernel's loop
driver, which is required for loop-aes to work, according to the loop-aes docs.
So I haven't tried this with the RPM built by RH.

I got it to work by symlinking the vmlinux from my /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/...
directory. But this should not be necessary. It should be included in the -devel

Comment 1 Dave Jones 2005-02-19 04:43:06 UTC
vmlinux lives in the -debuginfo package.
it's also very very unusual for a module build to require this, it smells broken.
