Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 427311
Last modified: 2008-03-19 16:41:10 EDT
Description of problem:
The kernel does not use CONFIG_MODULE_SRCVERSION_ALL=y, which prevents modules
that don't use MODULE_VERSION() tags from getting a srcversion field in their
modinfo. DKMS uses the srcversion field to determine if a module is exactly the
same or not. It would benefit from having srcversion enabled for all modules.
Ubuntu and openSUSE enable this option.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I would like to see this enabled for F7, F8, rawhide, and RHEL kernels as well.
Ping. How can I help this along?
Not seeing any reason we can't at least flip it on in rawhide and see what
happens there... Okay, flipped it on.
But last I heard davej wasn't running modpost/building modversions. I should
check what's currently going on there in rawhide - been a bit busy with RHEL :)
