Issuing "rpm --rebuild kernel-2.4.2-2.src.rpm" fails when applying patch 205:
Patch #205 (linux-2.4.2-parport.patch):
+ patch -p1 -s
The next patch would create the file `drivers/parport/ChangeLog',
which already exists! Assume -R? [n]
This file exists in the kernel tarball and is patched in Patch1 (patch-2.4.2-ac3.bz2), so its timestamp at the time patch 205 is applied is the
I am building as a normal user, not root. I've rm'd the BUILD/kernel-2.4.2 directory before retrying to verify I'm not getting a stale copy.
Steps to Reproduce:
rpm --rebuild kernel-2.4.2-2.src.rpm
Also fails with
rpm -i kernel-2.4.2-2.src.rpm
rpm -ba kernel-2.4.spec
Doh! Looks like I've got an archaic version of patch. I grabbed the one from 7.1 and the build is now humming away. Guess the kernel SRPM needs a
build prereq for patch.
(I need to upgrade an older box, but I need LUN support to handle both my logical drives on my MegaRAID, so I expect I need to build a custom kernel
*before* I upgrade. Is LUN support so expensive that it can't be enabled in the stock kernel?)
Yes you need a newer patch. We have the buildprereq there in our daily builds
for a week now. (you're the second person to notice). If you are running 6.2,
you also need a newer bash (well, the other guy did)
We don't enable LUN support as it breaks on WAY too many "cheap" devices.
If you have a device that needs it, we can "whitelist" it if you give
lspci output and the /proc/scsi/scsi content.
