Description Colin DuPée 2006-07-17 15:46:59 UTC
I don't know if anyone particularly cares...

I'm running an amd64 kernel, and if I specify a local version* when compiling the kernel, x11-drivers/ati-drivers is unable to find the kernel source, and bombs out while compiling.

I updated the wiki at the attached address so people had a hope of fixing it since the errors it throws are a bit cryptic.

Other packages don't have this problem, so there has to be something that can be done.  I'm assuming the script is using 'uname -r' to construct the path to the sources, and if you have a local version specified... well, that doesn't work.

*Just in case I'm the only one who ever uses local version, I'm talking about:
General setup --->
 () Local version - append to kernel release

I am unable to reproduce this. Can you attach a build log if this still happens with recent versions (test with 8.34.8 if possible)?
Comment 2 Colin DuPée 2007-03-08 02:16:43 UTC
I can't repro this any more with recent builds.  I'll remove the workaround from the wiki.
