Description Eric Brown 2003-12-09 21:59:33 UTC
pre11 won't emerge on mm-sources (2.6.0_beta10-r1), some failure to locate /usr/src/linux/arch/x86/Makefile  (x86 dir is not in the tree anymore...)

i tried to link it, but it didn't work properly after..

Reproducible: Always

See bug #32737 for more information on the problems with building external modules with 2.6 kernels. Newer versions of linux-wlan-ng have that missing file problem fixed, but still have issues with sandbox violations caused by the 2.6 kbuild stuff. For now installing linux-wlan-ng -pre16 by hand is sadly one of the better ways to handle things with a 2.6 kernel.

removing this.. don't think anyone cares after so long ;)

It's definitely *NOT* that no one cares. If you'd see bug #32737, pretty much the only thing i've been working on is getting 2.6 and kernel modules working well. As for mm-sources, it's suggested on #32737 and on other bugs, that for now all you need to do is disable sandbox. I don't know if the "no one cares" was serious or not, but believe me, this matters to me.
