Description Peter Johanson (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-02-01 10:49:37 UTC
Bug #32737 contains lots of information on a new system i've been working on to get external kernel modules working against 2.6 kernels. One of the side effects is that version.h will no longer be in /usr/src/linux. The patch i will attach changes the ExtractKernelVersion in to use the toplevel kernel Makefile instead. I'm a bit of a python neophyte, so comments on style, optimization, etc would be appreciated.

Reproducible: Always

Here's the patch to use the toplevel Makefile instead of version.h

supposed to be fixed in 2.0.50 which is stable now. If this bug is not fixed please reopen.
