Well I am working on building a kernel that will have the IPsec BEET
mode patch available from infrahip.hiit.fi.
I have some decent help, but really no one there is a seasoned Centos
kernel builder (though they work with different FC kernels), and now
they are mostly done for the day.
I have been following the wiki on building a custom kernel, got my patch
in ~/rpmbuild/SOURCES and away with the rpmbuild. That failed on line 69:
Unknown tag: % define buildid .hipl0809111
But the comments say to set the define to something like ".local" or
So why the failure? Too long our are the quotes required?
If this works, I would like to see this patch 'mainstreamed' as it is in
the 2.6.27 kernel....
