Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 206158
UTS_RELEASE define missing in include/linux/version.h
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:33 EST
Description of problem:
I don't know if this is the change in the upstream kernel or ommision in RHEL5.
Probably the former (in which case this isn't really a bug). The 2.6.9 kernels
in RHEL4 have UTS_RELEASE defined.
While running vmware-config-tools.pl script (from ESX 3.0 packages), and
attempting to build vmware's modules, the script failed because UTS_RELEASE
define was missing from version.h kernel header file. After readding it, the
script ran fine and built the modules.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to run vmware-config-tools.pl
UTS_RELEASE has moved to linux/utsrelease.h
The issue might be worked around by adding the following line to the beginning
of the header file /usr/src/kernels/<version-rel-arch>/include/linux/version.h:
Further to comment #2:
can be used with Fedora Core 5: kernel-2.6.18-1.2200.fc5, kernel-2.6.18-1.2239.fc5
