Hi,

if one needs any of the kmdls for the CentOS plus kernel - which I
should start supporting from ATrpms proper, but until then users will
need to cater for themselves - you can rebuild kmdls for it w/o
a need to edit the distro-shared src.rpm.

Instructions:

smart/yum/apt-get install atrpms-rpm-config
wget -N ..../foo-1.2.3-4.src.rpm (this is the shared src.rpm for foo kmdls)
rpmbuild -bb --define 'kmdl_userland 0' foo-1.2.3-4.src.rpm

It will build kmdls for the running kernel (provided the kernel
sources/headers are at the canonical place). One can also pass
arguments to build kmdls for non-running kernels, if one needs to.
