Description Holger Benl 2002-02-11 12:29:39 UTC
When I do "emerge --buildpkg alsa-driver", it fails. Reason: the environment
variable $KV isn't set and so emerge tries "./configure
--with-kernel=/usr/src/linux- --with-.....", which fails. When I do "emerge
alsa-driver", everything works fine.

Bevin, what do you think about adding a standard KV variable to portage that's
always defined as the version of the /usr/src/linux symlink, or "" if no such
link exists?  That would come in handy.

should be fixed on cvs now.  Fixed existing file without bumping rev.  Thanks
for the bug report.
