As I plow through the Kernel source to figure out why the BEET patch is
not working, I notice that there are two similar directories under
linux-2.16.18.i386 and linux-2.16.18.i686
So which one am I suppose to be patching?
Currently, the patch starts out with:
diff -urN a/net/ipv4/xfrm4_input.c b/net/ipv4/xfrm4_input.c
I followed the kernel source setup instructions on the wiki:
tells me to supply i686 for getting and setting up the source.
has me setting up a .config file with '# i386' as the first line. Now
that is a comment, right? So why add such a comment. Perhaps it is NOT
a comment? Shesh...
Anyway, which directory structure gets used in the rpmbuild:
rpmbuild -bb --target=`uname -m` kernel-2.6.spec 2> build-err.log | tee
Do I add this to the patch?
