[OpenAFS] Building Kernel Modules for RHEL4
Thu, 22 Dec 2005 11:28:03 -0500
Read the instructions from rpm -qpi openafs...src.rpm
You want to use rpmbuild --rebuild --target=i686 (assuming you're running
on a 686 and not a 586).
Quoting Mike Bydalek <email@example.com>:
> We have a few RHEL4 boxes that I want to start installing OpenAFS on,

> Anyways, the problem is that openafs.org provides a
> openafs-kernel-1.4.0-2.6.9_22.EL_1.i686.rpm, but it RedHat has since
> updated the kernel to 2.6.9-22.0.1.EL.
> I tried to build custom packages using the openafs.spec file provided
> hoping that it would build a proper openafs-kernel...rpm package, but
> it just built the openafs-kernel-source-1.4.0-1.1.i386.rpm, which
> uses the afsmodload, which doesn't come with the rpms according to
> Derrick (read it in an archive from October).
> So my question is, what are the proper steps to build an RPM for the
> current kernel on RHEL4? In the spec file, I keep seeing references
> to building the modules for the running kernel by default, but I
> don't see that happening.
> Any help is greatly appreciated.
