yes, i have encountered this bug as well, not only that, but the recommended fix has not
fixed the problem.....there also is another bug i have run into and am not sure how to fix....
same thing as you building a kernel....i get almost all the way through and then
becuase of a missing operand, that i am not usre how to get around. i can't build my kernel....
if anyone has an idea on how to fix this drop me a line!
....following the Custom-kernel guide:
rpmbuild -bb --with baseonly --with firmware --without debuginfo --target=`uname -m` kernel.spec
im done configuring, ready to build....almost done and this happens!
+ cp /home/ninez/rpmbuild/BUILDROOT/kernel-2.6.32zen6-1.i386/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-zen6
cp: missing destination file operand after `/home/ninez/rpmbuild/BUILDROOT/kernel-2.6.32zen6-1.i386/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-zen6'
Try `cp --help' for more information.
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.9IFJl5 (%install)
RPM build errors:
Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.9IFJl5 (%install)
this isn't isolated, anytime i try to build a kernel this happens. it looks like a "space" is missing.
i looked through code to see if i could find and fix the problem, but no luck....
it's very annoying, 1st off not being able to "builddep", okay that's fine i can still move along, as i have all of the dependencies, only to find this next error
.as a linux user, i expect to have to do a lot of setups and fixes, but it's really dumb when some of the most important tools don't work properly,
as unlike say a MAC or windows box - which will handle most anything you throw at it, linux is in limbo, half working half not so much...and just when things seem to be working great - linux craps out again....lol
anyway, if someone has run into this and has a good fix, i would appreciate the help!
take care and thanks.
i am in the meantime im gonna google a bit and probably manually finish this kernel,
i just wish dev-tools were just a little less buggy, and a little
more reliable and solid-state in linux. cause we the the linux community are so reliant of them.
well, maybe another 8months to a year and i can start contributing code and fix bugs myself,
but i am just ing learning C++ this year....
