Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 65156
inconsistent renaming in 2.4.18-4 sources
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:42:39 EDT
Description of Problem:
In drivers/scsi/sym53c8xx_2/Makefile an object file sym53c8xx.o was
renamed to sym53c8xx_2.o (against explicit author wishes - but this is
another story) but a Makefile one level above still refers to
sym53c8xx_2/sym53c8xx.o. This hits if one tries to recompile sources
in a different configuration where new sym.0.9.0 driver is a built-in
instead of a module.
If you still want to do renaming an obvious small adjustment in
drivers/scsi/Makefile resolves the issue.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The author can wish what he wants, but modutils simply doesn't allow
2 modules with the same filename.... As for the bug, I'll fix it.
Exactly! AFAIK Gerard Roudier provided this new driver as a replacement
and not an alternative. But if you want that other way then do that at
least consistently. :-)
