kernel build error on kernel-2.2.12-20 rebuild as normal user
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:52 EDT
on kernel-2.2.12-20's SPEC there is a bug on %build where
BuildPCMCIA would be called twice when there is an i386
Build, resulting on an error on a build of the spec as a
normal user, because of an attempt to overwrite a read only
actually, the first files build for BuildPCMCIA are tagged
as BOOT and then overwriten for the final ones (if building
the spec as root).
as can be seen on the following extract of the kernel spec,
when arch = i386, the BuildPCMCIA instruction is called
%ifarch i386 i586 i686
actually the first call of BuildPCMCIA has no sense.., since
there isn't a corresponding -pcmcia package for boot
subpackage, so this could be commented, keeping like this
The call for building it in the BOOT section is for
building the modules, which are used in the -BOOT kernel.

I believe this bug to be fixed in the 2.4 kernel rpm of current releases.
Please reopen if it is still a problem in 7.3.
