Patch for the Makefile

Adds in a couple of files to be deleted by mrproper, that's it

Your kernel source should have nothing to do with c libs. Those files existing shouldn't either. I'd be interested to know what problems you are having.
Comment 3 Liam Helmer 2003-11-18 15:49:11 UTC
Well, I took a kernel source that I'd already compiled a kernel in, and copied it into another installation that used glibc 2.2, rather than glibc 2.3. I issued a make clean, make distclean, make mrproper... and still was unable to compile the modules (the kernel compiled fine). The holdup was being unable to run makeproconfigdata, because of lacking glibc2.3. I manually went in and deleted these files, but they should have been dumped with a make mrproper, as they are built during the make dep (which you must issue after a make mrproper anyways)... that's why I sent out the patch.

I honestly don't know if this is a gentoo bug or a bug, but it was minorly irritating <grin>. It really only affects people working with many different distributions... although perhaps cross-compiling people may find this irritating as well?

I can't find any kernels on my system (and I've got 21 -sources installed atm) that specify the removal of those files. This is an upstream bug. You should file it at and the proper people will investigate it.
