Description Roderick Constance 2002-06-26 20:36:40 UTC
Description of Problem:

There is a typo in 2.4.18-5/drivers/pcmcia/Config.in that causes 'Configure' to
produce a warning:

[root@eng187 linux-2.4]# sh scripts/Configure -d arch/i386/config.in >/dev/null
scripts/Configure: [: : unary operator expected

In 2.4.18-5/drivers/pcmcia/Config.in, line 26:

   if [ "$CONFIG_8xx" ="y" ]; then

There is a space missing after the equal sign. So it should correctly read:

   if [ "$CONFIG_8xx" = "y" ]; then

This is a small mistake, but it will cause the RedHat Ready (v. 1.7-10d) kernel
test to fail.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RedHat 7.3 errata kernel source (2.4.18-5)

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install 2.4.18-5 kernel source RPM
2. cd /usr/src/linux-2.4.18-5
3. make oldconfig >/dev/null

Actual Results:
scripts/Configure: [: : unary operator expected

Expected Results:
no warning/error
