Description Alaa Hleihel 2013-08-20 10:38:41 EDT
NOTE: The bug is related to "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.0 Alpha3" but it wasn't in the products list, so i put under RHEL6.

Description of problem:
While creating a kernel module package using kernel_module_package. The %{kernel_source $flavor} expands to a non-existing directory:
make: *** /usr/src/kernels/3.7.0-0.36.el7-x86_64: No such file or directory.  Stop.
make: *** [kernel] Error 2
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.fl4iBx (%build)
%{kernel_source $flavor} returned a path that doesn’t exist: /usr/src/kernels/3.7.0-0.36.el7-x86_64
it should return: /usr/src/kernels/3.7.0-0.36.el7.x86_64
with a dot "." instead of a hyphen before the architecture.

Also, rpm --eval %{kernel_module_package} gives:

1. The architecture is missing in path "/lib/modules/3.7.0-0.36.el7/".
it should be "/lib/modules/3.7.0-0.36.el7.x86_64/".
2. "/lib/firmware/" is not always needed by all packages, so i don't think that it should be here.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a spec file using kernel_module_package (and kernel_source).
2. Build.
3. It will fail because of the missing directory.

Actual results:
%{kernel_source $flavor} returns: /usr/src/kernels/3.7.0-0.36.el7-x86_64

Expected results:
%{kernel_source $flavor} should return: /usr/src/kernels/3.7.0-0.36.el7.x86_64
(with a dot "." instead of a hyphen before the architecture.)
Comment 2 Weiping Pan 2013-08-22 03:44:18 EDT
The fix for this bug is already included in the patch for bug 928599, and that bug is fixed in 9.1.0-49 for redhat-rpm-config.
Comment 3 Alaa Hleihel 2013-08-27 04:43:37 EDT
the issue was resolved with version 9.1.0-49.
Comment 5 Weiping Pan 2013-12-09 22:13:53 EST
Accordering to the bug description, the product of this bug should be "Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7", so I will modify it.

And accordering to commet 3, this bug is fixed, so I will close it with a dupliacate of bug 928599.
