Description Jon Masters 2007-02-21 17:22:35 UTC
Description of problem:

kmodtool shipped in RHEL5 redhat-rpm-config adds target arch dependency to
source RPM. This is causing problems for dkms (and probably other tools too).

Per upstream discussions on this topic, I'm closing as NOTABUG. However, if you
disagree or want to debate other options, please reopen and let me know.

jcm, can you include a pointer to those discussions?


Comment 4 Jon Masters 2007-04-11 04:33:21 UTC
I'm refering to the email thread between you, me and Thorsten where this came up
- unless I'm greatly missing something. Am I completely mistaken here? I'm
pretty sure we'd debated this in the context of DKMS for the last release. You
had mentioned about build systems and the problems of adding the target arch
dependency and I thought we'd basically agreed to keep it as it was.
