Description Aleksandar Milivojevic 2005-08-19 20:48:10 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050721 CentOS/1.0.6-1.4.1.centos4 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
When building custom kernel packages from kernel SRPM, I got argument list too long.  Apperently, mkdep used find to build list of depencies.  xargs should be used there.

Fix is simple.  I'll attach it.  I used 999 as patch number, please change as appropriate.  The attchment contains only the patch file that needs to be applied from the spec file.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set CONFIG_SCSI_MULTI_LUN=y in kernel config files and attempt to rebuild the kernel RPM packages.  It fails for target i386 (the one that also builds kernel-source and kernel-docs).

This doesn't seem to be important enough to fix just on its own, so mark it DEFER.

Not a security issue.
