[OpenAFS] Re: testing RPMs for 1.4.2
Thu, 12 Oct 2006 17:12:37 -0400
If you use the Official RPMS then (a) you'll already have RPMs for 2054,
and (b), all you need to do to rebuild for a new kernel is:
rpmbuild --rebuild --target=i686 openafs...src.rpm
I'll let Axel try to explain to you why his method has to be so much
more complicated than that. ;)
