Description Alexander Farley 2002-04-02 23:04:20 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020328

Description of problem:
The file or folder "ulib" is not present in the the kernel source RPM
(kernel-souce-2.4.18-0.12.i386.rpm). Ulib is referenced three times in the
makefile, each time with very little information about its location.  I believe
it is supposed to be located in the main linux-2.4.18-0.12 folder.  The one
informative reference is that ulib/libredhat-kernel.so.1 is supposed to
installed into %(TOPDIR)/lib/kernel/$(KERNELRELEASE)/, which it already is when
the RPM is installed.  I can find scant (relevant) references to a ulib folder
anywhere on the internet (with the only obscure referneces coming from RedHat).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.make bzImage

Actual Results:  complains that no file or folder "ulib" is present.

Expected Results:  the compilation of the bzImage should have run to completion,
which it does if all references to ulib are commented out of the makefile.

Additional info:

I am using gcc-2.96-109.
The regular kernel RPM that I am using works perfectly 2.4.18-0.12, but I wanted
to add agpgart to the kernel.
I appologize if there is an RPM that I have not installed, but I received no
dependency complaints when the kernel-source RPM was installed.

Comment 1 Alexander Farley 2002-04-03 02:11:27 UTC
If the three references to ulib are commented out and the new/custom kernel and
modules are installed everything appears to work (i.e. compiles, installs,
boots, and runs fine).  However, this does not provide a real solution to the

Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2002-04-03 06:56:24 UTC
This is indeed a bug in the spec for kernel-source; fixed for 2.4.18-0.13 which
should appear in rawhide soon. Thanks for reporting
