Description Chris Seawood 2000-02-18 20:17:42 EST
I noticed the kernel srpm comes with large filesystem (lfs) support so I
set the lfs define to 1 and attempted to recompile the kernel.  It failed
when applying the lfs patch.

+ echo Patch #22 (linux-2.2.14-lfs.patch):

Comment 1 Chris Seawood 2000-04-09 15:54:59 EDT
Just following up, the kernel rpm shipped with 6.2 handles building the lfs
enabled kernel a tad bit better.  I still had to put sparc ifdefs around patches
64 & 85 to get a lfs-enabled i386 kernel to compile.
Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 2000-07-31 16:47:07 EDT
This is usually fixed in rawhide kernels, although we occasionally
regress when patches conflict with the lfs patches that we do not
normally apply.
