Description Frederic Blanchard 2007-02-01 16:15:10 UTC
Description of problem:
 I want to recompile Anaconda (more specificly its loader app) to add a few
customizations, but its source code refer to deprecated declaration like
"START_ARRAY".  Commenting out the source code only lead to other similar problems. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fully updated Fedora Core 6 (2007.01.30)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download and install anaconda- 
2. Download and install all required "devel" package like libdhcp-devel
3. Go to anaconda main source code directory and run make
Actual results:

isys.c: In function ‘doRaidStart’:
isys.c:974: error: ‘START_ARRAY’ undeclared (first use in this function)
isys.c:974: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
isys.c:974: error: for each function it appears in.)
make[1]: *** [isys.lo] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/data/fedora/fc6/loader/anaconda-'
make: *** [subdirs] Error 1

 Its look like the "kernel-headers-2.6.19-1.2895.fc6" package, which contains
the "/usr/include/linux/raid/md_u.h" defective file, is not up to date.

Anaconda changes a lot.  If you want to rebuild it, patch it, etc, you need to
either get the source from CVS or grab a source RPM from rawhide.  We've fixed
this problem (and you really don't need to report stuff like this).
