Description carenas 1999-10-28 05:23:02 UTC
on %install of the 2.2.12-20 spec, there is a call to

#this is kind of ugly, but we have asked for it
touch /boot/kernel.h || :

this would change a file that is not inside the
RPM_BUILD_ROOT and which belongs to the -headers subpackage
of an old kernel package.

touch RPM_BUILD_ROOT/boot/kernel.h

would be all what is needed, bit almos at the end of the
%install script there is a

> $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/boot/kernel.h

that would make this first statement unnecesary.
