Description Jason Baron 2006-10-06 18:21:45 EDT
Description of problem:

building out of tree object files fails for ppc64 kernels

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

1. cp ./configs/xen-config .config
2. make O=/tmp/objdir oldconfig
3. make O=/tmp/objdir bzImage
Actual results:

cp vmlinux arch/ppc64/boot/bzImage
cp: cannot create regular file `arch/ppc64/boot/bzImage': No such file or directory
make[2]: *** [bzImage] Error 1
make[1]: *** [bzImage] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/kernel-2.6.9/linux-2.6.9'

Expected results:

kernel should build

Comment 1 Jason Baron 2006-10-06 18:23:58 EDT
step one in how to reproduce should really be cp ./configs/ppc64-config .config

Fix destination of bzImage

The bzImage build target is introduced in patch linux-2.6.2-ppc64-build.patch. 
This patch assumes that the object directory and source tree are the same. 
This attachment updates the appropriate Makefile to place the bzImage in the
object directory. 
Comment 6 Peter Martuccelli 2007-03-06 10:55:06 EST
Janice please submit the patch for PPC to RHKL.

Fix destination of bzImage (reverting to original patch)

The original patch was fine.  My mistake.  There is no way to undo an obsolete
mark, so I'm reposting it with the same name.

In the -54 kernel, so ok to close this side.
