Description Trevin Beattie 2006-10-26 16:49:04 EDT
Description of problem:
The file include/linux/config.h is not found in
/usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-1.2798.fc6-x86_64/.  It was present in the last release
candidate (2.6.17-1.2630.fc6).  This file is required to build a 3rd-party
kernel module (fglrx).

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

Steps to Reproduce:
Try building the ATI fglrx 8.29.6:
# ./ati-driver-installer-8.29.6.run --buildpkg Fedora/FC6

Actual results:
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-1.2798.fc6-x86_64'
  CC [M] 
error: linux/config.h: No such file or directory
make[2]: ***
Error 1
make[1]: ***
Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-1.2798.fc6-x86_64'
make: *** [kmod_build] Error 2
build failed with return value 2

Expected results:
Comment 1 Trevin Beattie 2006-10-26 17:02:17 EDT
Downgrading the severity since I have found a very simple workaround for the
problem.  The file
/usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-1.2798.fc6-x86_64/include/linux/config.h can be created
by hand with the following contents:

#include <linux/autoconf.h>
