Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2001-09-20 18:05:01 EDT
Yeah known and (now fixed) problem. Fixed a few hours after 0.5 was built;
but with the "rawhide is a snapshot", that snapshot sometimes is at the wrong
second ;)

Anyway, if you don't mind rebuilding the rpm, if you disable patch 870 (eg add a
# in front of %patch870 -p1) will make it work for now.
Comment 4 Jeff Busch 2001-09-20 20:39:52 EDT
ok I commented out patch 870 and the build failed ...

I can upload the whole log and spec file if you wish ... the only other things 
I changed in the spec were the %define build's at the beginning ...

Am I doing something wrong?
Comment 5 Arjan van de Ven 2001-09-21 04:12:38 EDT
Some of the %define's in the beginning are not actually tunable in the 2.4.9
kernel right now; that's to be fixed soon I hope...
