Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 209895
kernel-devel is missing include/config.h
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:28:56 EST
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):
it's going away upstream. ivtv needs to be changed.
just remove the #include <linux/config.h>
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 ?
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.
