Re: Where did the Fedora 8 CVS go to?



Thanx for the reply but i'm stuck after step 10.
after step 10 it says: "You may then proceed as usual."
and what is that? is that make rpm? or rpmbuild in some special location?

the notice below step 10 says: "Normally, kernels for Fedora are built
using the rpmbuild utility and a specfile. Your results may vary if
you use the kernel's built-in make rpm target." but that doesn't
answer the question.to me it indicates that both make rpm and rpmbuild
are possible.. but than again.. where can i do rpmbuild on the kernel?

That documentation should be expanded with the full guide for making a rpm.

This will help you::

In your specific case you're missing the --target $(uname -m)
