Jeff Mahoney napsal(a):
I wonder if there are ways that we can creatively work on dependent
builds. The kernel binaries should be dependent on kernel-source as


and mbuild is the only reason they're not. The build service can
handle it. People using rpmbuild can use it. It's mbuild that's the issue.

But is it practical then? I mean to build a kernel, you just build a
kernel-$flavor.spec. If you make kernel-$flavor.spec dependent on
kernel-source, then you always have to first build kernel-source.spec

... which is a sane thing to do anyway, as you "must" distribute
kernel-source with any binary kernel package in order to comply with
the GPL.

(which spends good amount of time in rpmlint),

... peanuts compared to the build time of actual kernel flavors.

and what's worse, if you
forget this step, then the next build will pick up whatever
kernel-source package is in the repository. If it's the duplication
between kernel-source.spec and kernel-$flavor.spec that bothers you,
then it's IMO easier to factor out the source unpacking and patching to
a separate script.
