Description Ernie Petrides 2005-09-01 01:17:49 UTC
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):


How reproducible:

perform internal kernel builds in beehive

Steps to Reproduce:


Actual results:

The following error is found in the build log:

    lpfc_logmsg.o: file not recognized: File truncated
    make[3]: *** [lpfc.o] Error 1

Expected results:

successful build

I'm proposing that a fix for this be included in the final U6 respin.

Comment 2 Ernie Petrides 2005-09-02 19:29:31 UTC
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).
