Apologies for the OT cross post, but I couldn't sort this out and
any help is greatly appreciated.. (Others directed me here)
PathScale needs some packaging help
1) kernel-trace, kernel-default, kernel-sources , kernel-trace-sources
(if they differ) , kernel-trace-sysm (if this needs to be different
I've started a package  derived from Kernel:HEAD which gets close to
doing what we need, but not quite. The kernel-trace package builds and
boots, but I can't manage to get the corresponding kernel-trace-sources
to correctly match.
The kernel-trace-sources package should be the same as the
kernel-sources package, there is no difference.
That's what I thought, but the results I got disagreed.. I specifically
needed to do two things
1) Build the closed NVIDIA driver (I couldn't get this to work and after
a day of fighting gave up)
2) Build pscnv (I didn't get to this..
What I ended up resorting to was installing the source package, using
the traces config and manually building the kernel. By doing that I got
the running kernel to match the sources at /usr/src/linux and was able
to achieve both #1 and #2 from above..
2) pscnv (Built against the kernel-default and
kernel-trace from above)
(There's existing nouveau packages which could possibly be a good base
That's an opensolaris driver, why would you want to build it on Linux?
That README and the COPYING file needs to be updated.. It builds against
the traces source 2.6.35 and also I believe newer kernel versions..
