Description Leonard den Ottolander 2005-09-06 11:48:48 UTC
Description of problem:

The `whoami`@`hostname -s` in the define of rhbsys causes grief with a newly
build kernel (from srpm) as uname -a does not report the part after the '@'
which causes depmod to fail.

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

kernel-2.6.12-1.1447_FC4.src.rpm

Steps to Reproduce:
rpm -iv kernel.src.rpm
rpmbuild -ba --target <arch> kernel.spec
rpm -iv kernel.<arch>.rpm
reboot

Actual results:

Numerous modules fail to load as depmod can't find the correct module tree.

Additional info:

Suggest using `whoami`_at_`hostname -s` instead of `whoami`@`hostname -s`.

Comment 1 Dave Jones 2005-09-12 05:53:33 UTC
this caused numerous other problems too. It's been backed out in the latest
build at http://people.redhat.com/davej/kernels/Fedora/FC4/
