  • Message-id: <19144.>

Can you provide me with a .spec file I can use in the Opensuse Build
Service to do the following things:

- To build a customised, patched kernel in a installable rpm [i586 &
x86_64] formats.

I ask because I want to build the package properly. And I do not have
advanced experience to build the .spec file myself.
Could you provide me with a .spec file to handle the following items:

Sources used:
[file copied into home/userid/source/linux-]

[file copied into home/userid/source/reiser4-for-2.6.24.patch]

.config [file copied into home/userid/source/.config]
[This has the selected customised kernel configuration options on the
["append to kernel release" e.g -default-reiser4 and [File systems /

Things to do:
- Unpack the kernel source [home/userid/source/linux-]

- Copy in a .config into the unpacked kernel either a i586 or x86_64
.config file from [home/userid/source/.config] so it will compile.

- Apply patch to the unpacked kernel source
[patch -p1 < home/userid/source/reiser4-for-2.6.24.patch]

- Make installable rpm [i586 & x86_64] formats.

- cleanup temporary files

I know its a big learning experience for me, and I would like to
contribute in some way.
Thankyou for your help and time.
