Description Glen A. Foster 2002-08-14 14:31:40 EDT
Description of Problem: It would aid/assist troubleshooting of the RHR scripts
if, when looking for /usr/src/linux (or /usr/src/linux-2.4), the function
locate_sources() in /etc/init.d/rhr_functions were patched as follows:

# diff -u rhr_functions.ORIG rhr_functions
--- rhr_functions.ORIG  2002-08-14 12:28:57.000000000 -0600
+++ rhr_functions       2002-08-14 12:31:48.000000000 -0600

Comment 1 Chris Kloiber 2002-08-16 22:36:00 EDT
One of the requirements for running the Red Hat Ready Certification tests is an
"Everything" class install. This means kernel-source is assumed to be present.
While adding a check for kernel-source would not hurt, it is not really needed.
Comment 2 Glen A. Foster 2002-08-19 11:47:14 EDT
... of course, it's not needed, which is why the summary started as "Enh:"  
(enhancement).  Since enhancements are typically requests, can you re-close 
this bug as WONTFIX instead of NOTABUG, please?
