Description Greg Kroah-Hartman 2000-11-14 23:54:11 UTC
The kernel-source package contains entries in the include/linux/modules
directory.  This can cause a build of the kernel tree to fail.

Steps to reproduce:

rpm -Uhv kernel-source-2.2.16-22.i386.rpm
cd /usr/src/linux
make oldconfig
make clean && make dep && make bzImage

build will fail with the following error:
gcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux/include -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2
-fomit-frame-pointer -fno-strict-aliasing -pipe -fno-strength-reduce -m386
-DCPU=386   -DEXPORT_SYMTAB -c ksyms.c

-------------------------------------------

Note:  Running 'make mrproper' on the tree does fix this.

You're *supposed* to run make mrproper. The module info is there
for compiling external modules against.
