Hello all,

I inherited a problem with linux-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4smp in
that plugging in a USB mouse on a new AMD machine causes
a crash. I took a new disk and installed the complete
installation from "Fedora core." The sources provided
with the distribution do not compile with the tools
provided with the distribution! I need to find the
real sources for this kernel, something that will
compile so I can add some debugging info in the
ohci-hcd driver.

Checking the web only shows a ".rpm" that contains
only patches, no source. What goes? Is this a secret
distribution?


Cheers,
Dick Johnson

This one?

Yes. The RPM contains only patches and the patches won't
patch a 2.6.11 kernel either! Perhaps they need to be
in some undefined order.

Umm... I just checked that specific RPM, and that RPM *does* contain all that
you need. In particular, the following *are* in there:

kernel-2.6.spec
linux-2.6.11.tar.bz2
patch-2.6.12-rc5-neutered.bz2  <- probably why they won't patch a 2.6.11

The spec file lists all the *.patch files and the order to apply them in.  It
even has a whole bunch of *.config files.

Your best best is to 'rpm -ivh' that RPM - that will put the pieces in
/usr/src/redhat/SOURCES and /usr/src/redhat/SPECS.  'rpmbuild kernel.spec'
(with appropriate flags, you probably want '--target x86_64' if you want
a  64-bit build only).  Adding patches is a matter of dropping the patch in
/usr/src/redhat/SOURCES and adding a few lines to the kernel-2.6.spec file.

Okay, Thanks. I "think" I am compiling it now!
There are lots of warnings, but it didn't blow up (yet)!
