Description Stephen Biggs 2005-10-07 13:00:26 UTC
Description of problem:
The spec file creates a version name that has a '@' in it.  That is, an example
version of an SMP kernel with username 'user' and machine name 'machinename'
would be 2.6.13-1.1526_FC4.user@machinenamesmp.

The directory is made with the correct name.  uname -a gives
2.6.13-1.1526_FC4.user which cuts off the '@' and everything afterwards.  Upon
boot, no modules are found because the directory name does not match what uname
returns.  Is this a uname bug?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel 2.6.13-1.1526_FC4
coreutils 5.2.1-48.1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download kernel-2.6.13-1.1526_FC4.src.rpm and do rpm --rebuild of the rpm.
Actual results:
uname returns kernel version information that does not match module directory
names (and perhaps other issues), causing at the very least modprobe to fail on
all modules.

Expected results:
uname should return the version with all characters including '@' and afterwards.

Additional info:
A sleazy hack/workaround to fix this is to manually edit the SPEC file and
replace the '@' with '_at_' in the version creation.  This then creates a 
kernel that has loadable drivers.
