Description Jeremy Katz 2001-01-23 11:27:59 EST
/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 12:43:46 EST
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Release-Candidate #1
Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2001-01-24 06:29:21 EST
I think I have a handle on this, potential fix is in CVS
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2001-01-24 07:57:45 EST
the symlink is to  ../../../usr/src/linux-2.4.0
but it works.
