Description Ville Skyttä 2006-03-31 19:17:51 UTC
This issue crept in the FC4 2.6.16-1.2069_FC4 update too.


+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #178491 +++

Recent FC5test2+ kernel-devel packages are missing the top-level .kernelrelease
file.  The top-level Makefile appears to use it nowadays for defining KERNELRELEASE.

The effect of KERNELRELEASE being empty is that the documented kbuild Makefile
method (see Documentation/kbuild/modules.txt, section 4) no longer works as
expected; in the following, the "kbuild part" is never entered when invoking
"make -C $kernelsrcdir M=`pwd`" like also instructed in kbuild/modules.txt.

    ifneq ($(KERNELRELEASE),)
    # kbuild part of makefile
    [...]
    else
    # Normal Makefile
    [...]
    endif

Comment 1 Dave Jones 2006-03-31 21:56:26 UTC
fixed in cvs yesterday, will be in next update

Comment 2 Roy A. Gilmore 2006-04-03 07:02:26 UTC
The most obvious temporary workaround:
  cd /usr/src/kernels/2.6.16-1.2069_FC4-i586
  make .kernelrelease

Comment 3 Roy A. Gilmore 2006-04-03 07:15:11 UTC
Whoops, replace the '-i586' with your arch, sorry
