Description Rich Rakich 2001-09-04 17:03:05 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686; en-US; rv:0.9.1)

Description of problem:
in the config.in file provided in the 2.4.2-2 kernel source, the 1GB and
3GB labels are swapped from the actual config item written to the .config
file.  This causes unresovled symbols for some kernel modules when using
modversions as it changes the symbol name by adding in a 3gig_ to the
function symbol.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run make [x,menu]config
2.Save and exit
3.look at the .config file, if you select the 1GB option, CONFIG_3GB is set
to y, if you select 3GB option, CONFIG_1GB is set to y

Actual Results:  See above.

Expected Results:  Setting the 1GB option should set CONFIG_1GB and the
same for the 3GB option.

This should be fixed in the 2.4.3-12 security errata kernel.
Comment 2 Justin Johnson 2002-06-18 17:07:32 EDT
This also happens on redhat 7.2 running kernel 2.4.7-10.
Comment 3 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 11:39:09 EDT
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
