I installed the latest FC3 kernel update, but I'm seeing:

i.e.  "build" should have been copied out as a deep copy, rather than
a shallow copy in the packaging.

On a semi-related note, I found that if you do:

cd /usr/src/redhat/SPECS
rpmbuild -bc --target x86_64 --buildroot /usr/src kernel-2.6.spec

after installing the kernel source RPM, then some very bad things happen.

It tries to do an "rm -rf *" inside /usr/src.  Ouch.  That's not right!

What's the standard way to get the source RPM to unpack into
and build in there?


I updated kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3 and installed the kernel-devel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3. it seems the kernel-devel installed a dir at /lib/modules/2.6.12-1.1372_FC3/build, this includes C heaher files needed when I update VMware configuration.

You may try to expliciently install kernel-devel, see if this fix a few things.
