kernel-source: split devel files and full-source
Why are you creating a separate /usr/src/linux-src directory? Is it not possible to continue installing everything into /usr/src/linux and just split the files between kernel-source and kernel-devel? People usually expect that the full kernel source is in /usr/src/linux.
No. Putting the source into the same spot as devel packages is the root reason that people are able to trash their KMP building environment.
I see, people who compile their kernel as root in /usr/src/linux directly break the /usr/src/linux-obj/... builddirs. But I would argue that people who do the above and people who build KMPs are two almost distinct groups :).
And I opted to leave the devel part in /usr/src/linux because more specfiles and Makefiles depend on it.
Yes, but then many people "depend" on the /usr/src/linux location to contain full sources of the kernel (I can imagine the bugreports and blog posts complaining that the evil SUSE moved away the kernel sources for no good reason...). Could you please post a patch that only splits the files between kernel-source and kernel-devel, so that we can handle the /usr/src/linux -> /usr/src/linux-src move separately? Thanks!
