Description Nicolas Mailhot 2006-10-07 12:43:39 EDT
Description of problem:

The linux-2.6-build-remove-configh-include.patch patch davej added two days ago
to kill include/kernel.h is causing a build failure in my ivtv dkms rpm. Please
back it out

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Comment 1 Dave Jones 2006-10-07 15:54:44 EDT
it's going away upstream. ivtv needs to be changed.
just remove the #include <linux/config.h>

Comment 2 Nicolas Mailhot 2006-10-07 17:38:06 EDT
Well, if it's going upstream, let it go upstream

What's the point of removing it ahead of time in Fedora ? Have non-Fedora people
complain Red Hat does not follow upstream and patches its kernels with all sorts
of strange stuff ? I thought the aim was to kill this reputation ?
Comment 3 Dave Jones 2006-10-11 19:55:02 EDT
it means when I rebase to 2.6.19 as an update for FC6 (which will happen very
shortly after its release), third party drivers will be already ready.

A surprising number of out-of-tree drivers only ever release updates for the
release kernel, and choose not to release updates for the errata kernels.
