Description Jeremy Katz 2001-01-23 16:27:59 UTC
/lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build is pointing into the build system root
(/usr/src/bs/BUILD/kernel-2.4.0/linux) as opposed to /usr/src/linux-2.4.0
which breaks building external modules.  This is the case in at least both
of 2.4.0-0.99.5 and 2.4.0-0.99.9

Comment 1 Glen Foster 2001-01-23 17:43:46 UTC
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Release-Candidate #1

Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2001-01-24 11:29:21 UTC
I think I have a handle on this, potential fix is in CVS

Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2001-01-24 12:57:45 UTC
the symlink is to  ../../../usr/src/linux-2.4.0
but it works.
