Description Gerd Hoffmann 2007-07-10 07:01:08 EDT
Description of problem:
rpm automagic dependency scripts create lots of "ksym(foo)" dependendencies for
kmod-* packages.  Nobody provides these dependencies though.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Comment 1 Jon Masters 2007-07-10 07:44:29 EDT
Ah. The kernel package used to provide ABI deps, but davej et al wanted it off
in Fedora - I guess that's caused this breakage (weird nobody filed this bug
before). I can disable the ksym dep generation on F7.

Comment 2 Gerd Hoffmann 2007-07-12 11:10:25 EDT
Just disabling is probably the best.  Making the kernel rpm provide all symbols
via ksym() generates an insane big list I guess ...

Ah ok. Yeah.

Comment 4 Jon Masters 2008-04-02 18:02:33 EDT
Oops, this one fell on the floor. I'm going to check and update r-r-c shortly.
Comment 5 Jon Masters 2008-04-03 02:58:33 EDT
In F-9 the find-requires script won't call find-requires.ksyms. But we probably
want a better solution that allows for the kernel to have these kABI deps too.
