Re: Kernel Modules in Fedora

Okay. What happens if the kernel maintainers don't want a module in the kernel for some reason (we're seeing one here with the kqemu module)? You have to compile from source? There is a plan for that, right?

You can't just assume the kernel developers don't want a module that the developer's have tried to submit as patches publicly in LKML. If the module has no future in the kernel, I don't see how we are going to take on the burden of maintaining it continuously forever. DKMS is a short term hack that will only work when the interface doesn't change and with the 2.6 kernel the amount of changes here are more often.
