Description of problem:
When building .rpms for a kadischi repository inclusion, one cannot choose the kernel to compile against. rpmbuild -bb --kernel= doesn't exist.
Rebooting into the same kernel that is in the kadischi repository is not very plausible.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Kadischi cvs (Sep 05 2005)
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Notice there is no --kern= option
3.Leave tha manual page
Actual Results: Noticed I couldn't build for kadischi, without using the same kernel as is in my kadischi repository.
Expected Results: Some kind of workaround at least.
Such as rpmbuild --target=i686 --kernel=2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 -bb foo.spec
This actually belongs in Core -> rpm -> devel
Running a different kernel than you are building for is a good example however
of why this should be looked into, and possibly migrated into rpmbuild.
Yes, there is no --kernel option in rpmbuild.
Choosing the kernel to compile against is determined by how you set up your build system.
Add a build dependency to your spec file if you wish to specify a specific kernel to build against.
