#170 new enhancement

OpenAFS mock builds should not rely on running kernel version

Reported by: ezyang Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: internals Keywords:


We currently test for what kernel to build OpenAFS against using:

kernvers = $(shell uname -r | sed "s/\(.*\)[.].*/\1/")

This is not ideal since it means we need to manually frob that line or reboot into a newer kernel before we can rebuild, say, OpenAFS. Do something more intelligent, like build against the version of the kernel that our repositories give us.

  • Type changed from defect to task

No manual frobbing is required, since all Makefile variables can be overridden on the command line (unless the variable was itself declared with the override directive):

make openafs-kernel kernvers=

This is documented in server/doc/kernel-build-howto.
