drivers/addon/lpfc/lpfcdfc/Makefile change causing intermittent build failures
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:08 EST
Description of problem:
It seems that the RHEL3 U6 Emulex driver update included a change to
the Makefile in drivers/addon/lpfc/lpfcdfc (to share lpfc_logmsg.o
with the parent directory build) that leads to intermittent build
failures in Beehive. This change was introduced in 2.4.21-32.12.EL.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
perform internal kernel builds in beehive
Steps to Reproduce:
The following error is found in the build log:
lpfc_logmsg.o: file not recognized: File truncated
make: *** [lpfc.o] Error 1
I'm proposing that a fix for this be included in the final U6 respin.
A fix for this problem has just been committed to the RHEL3 U6
patch pool this afternoon (in kernel version 2.4.21-36.EL).
