Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 481193
kernel_module_package versioning macros not exposed
Last modified: 2015-01-04 16:54:57 EST
Description of problem:
The following lines appear in /usr/lib/rpm/redhat/macros:
# Use these macros to differentiate between RH and other KMP implementation(s).
However, these macros don't appear to be testable in a spec file and don't appear in rpm --showrc output.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
My understanding is that
1. rpm --showrc | grep redhat_kernel_module_package
My goal is to come up with a robust (but hopefully simple) mechanism for detecting if a system supports a given style of kernel module package.
Apologies for not updating this BZ sooner. I believe we spoke offline about it in any case a few times, but for the record...we're not planning to update this package in RHEL5.5. I will have it considered for RHEL5.6 and am going to ensure it is on the radar for 6.0.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated in the
current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to address this
request at this time. Red Hat invites you to ask your support
representative to propose this request, if appropriate and relevant,
in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Agreed. I do not have plan to fix it for 5.11, thanks.
Product Management has reviewed and declined this request.
You may appeal this decision by reopening this request.
