Description Thomas Walker 2006-09-13 21:22:34 EDT
Description of problem:

kernel srpm fails a rebuild

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

[root@thwalker redhat]# rpm -q kernel

How reproducible:

[root@thwalker redhat]# rpmbuild -ba SPECS/kernel-2.6.spec

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install kernel-2.6.17-1.2174_FC5 srpm on an x86_64 machine
2. rpmbuild -ba SPECS/kernel-2.6.spec
3. failed build
Actual results:

+ make -s ARCH=x86_64 -j4 bzImage
  SYMLINK include/asm -> include/asm-x86_64
  CHK     include/linux/version.h
  SPLIT   include/linux/autoconf.h -> include/config/*
scripts/basic/split-include: include/linux/autoconf.h: Invalid argument
make: *** [include/config/MARKER] Error 1
make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
  UPD     include/linux/version.h
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.79110 (%build

RPM build errors:
    Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.79110 (%build)

Not sure why it is invalid:
[root@thwalker linux-2.6.17.x86_64]# ls -l include/linux/autoconf.h
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 80458 Sep 13 21:05 include/linux/autoconf.h

On occasion (yes, I've been trying to work around this) I get the following in

Sep 13 08:47:02 thwalker kernel: split-include[12615] general protection
rip:3b0f55e064 rsp:7fff6f6c3470 error:0

Expected results:

can rebuild kernel

Additional info:

The build works fine on RHEL4 U3/U4 boxes I have available but not on fc5 current.

The fc5 box:
[root@thwalker redhat]# rpm -q kernel
[root@thwalker redhat]# rpm -q glibc
Comment 1 Thomas Walker 2006-09-22 20:36:36 EDT
running 2187 seems to fix this
