Hello list.

I'm trying to rebuild the kernel, but it fails even without 
How did I try it?
Created a (non-root) build environment (not a mock )
Installed the kernel.scr.rpm and did a
rpmbuild -ba --target=`uname -m` kernel-2.6.spec 2> prep-err.log | tee 
The build failed at the end:

Processing files: kernel-xenU-devel-2.6.9-67.0.20.EL
Checking for unpackaged file(s): /usr/lib/rpm/check-files 

RPM build errors:

In my setup rebuilding the 2.6.9-67.0.15.EL kernel went ok

Does anybody knows what I do miss or what is going wrong?

For the curios:
Why to recompile the kernel?
I want to rebuild the kernel because I created a patch to decrease the 
kernel timer frequency from 1000 to 100 HZ. The CentOS4.6 kernel doesn't 
have the divider option available in CentOS5.2  This prevent timing problems 
and high CPU load  in VMware ESX.
