Re: Where did the Fedora 8 CVS go to?



oke, so that's how it should be done.
i'm compiling the kernel at this moment.... should take a while.
now lets hope that wifi support has been made better and that suspend is working how it should :)

But why isn't rpmbuild compiling all kernel rpm's if you leave out the --target? than it makes the kernel-headers rpm and a .src.rpm but nothing more.

It depends on what you want to do.  Your question seemed to be: How do I
get "rpmbuild -ba kernel-2.6.spec" to produce kernel rpms.  The answer
is:
  rpmbuild -ba --target $(uname -m) kernel-2.6.spec

I should have made it clearer in my original reply that the
"--target...." was the only thing you needed to get from that page.

If you want to make modifications to the kernel spec file, then the rest
of that page becomes relevant.
