I wanted to use the kernel-vanilla package for oss reasons.
I have a requirement for Qemu and the kqemu-kmp package. Unfortunately, there aren’t any kmp built for kernel-vanilla. I started poking around with the kqemu-kmp spec file and noticed:
for flavor in %flavors_to_build; do ./configure --kernel-path=/usr/src/linux-obj/%_target_cpu/$flavor make clean make make -C /usr/src/linux-obj/%_target_cpu/$flavor modules_install M=$PWD done
After looking in /usr/src/linux-obj/%_target_cpu/$flavor I noticed that -vanilla doesn’t have a lot of the stuff the other flavors do.
It looks like all that is missing is some files in
I am experimenting with this and copied the files from
/usr/src/linux-obj/$ARCH/default and changed them to say -vanilla instead of
bash# grep “-default” $(find /usr/src/linux-obj/i586/default -type f)
./include/linux/utsrelease.h:#define UTS_RELEASE “18.104.22.168-0.1-default”
./include/linux/autoconf.h:#define CONFIG_LOCALVERSION “-default”
So I changed these to -vanilla…
But this ended up producing a kqemu-kmp-vanilla rpm that was dependent on a
non-existant kernel-syms-vanilla. I am fumbling around blindly here and would
love some help or a push for the kmp packages.
