Hello, I attempted (for the first time) to recompile a kernel (to add HPFS support). I found a step-by-step guide of custom kernel creation on http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Docs/CustomKernel and attempted to follow it. All went well until the kernel install command: it failed in requiring the kernel-firmware: <localhost>.../SPECS>rpm -ivh ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/kernel-18.104.22.168-167.hpfs.fc11.x86_64.rpm error: Failed dependencies: kernel-firmware >= 22.214.171.124-167.hpfs.fc11 is needed by kernel-126.96.36.199-167.hpfs.fc11.x86_64 After some searching I understand that kernel-firmware is a sourceless package so I need to somehow to link the firmware files with the kernel, how can I do it? I did the kernel-creation not a a root, and when I see what kernel packages are installed on my system I see the firmware too: <localhost>.../rpmbuild>rpm -qa | grep kernel kernel-188.8.131.52-167.fc11.x86_64 kernel-headers-184.108.40.206-167.fc11.x86_64 kernel-firmware-220.127.116.11-167.fc11.noarch kerneloops-0.12-5.fc11.x86_64 kernel-devel-18.104.22.168-167.fc11.x86_64 Here is an excert from the history of the commands I used while attempting to re-compile the kernel (with some "ls" removed as irrelevant): 108 22:21 uname -m 111 22:28 rpmdev-setuptree 119 22:31 yumdownloader --source kernel 125 22:40 su -c 'yum-builddep kernel-22.214.171.124-167.fc11.x86_64.src.rpm' 126 23:16 su -c 'yum-builddep kernel-126.96.36.199-167.fc11.src.rpm' 127 23:53 su -c 'yum-builddep download/kernel-188.8.131.52-167.fc11.src.rpm' 129 23:55 rpm -Uvh kernel-184.108.40.206-167.fc11.src.rpm 133 23:59 rpmbuild -bp --target=`uname -m` kernel.spec 137 0:03 cd ../BUILD/kernel-2.6.29/linux-2.6.29.x86_64 141 0:07 cp configs/kernel-220.127.116.11-x86_64.config ./config 145 0:08 make oldconfig 146 0:09 make xconfig 149 0:26 uname -i 156 0:30 cp .config ~/rpmbuild/SOURCES/config-x86_64-generic 157 0:30 cd ~/rpmbuild/SPECS 159 0:31 ne kernel.spec & <=== Changed buildid to ".hpfs". 160 0:37 rpmbuild -bb --target=`uname -m` kernel.spec 164 6:23 rpm -ivh ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/kernel-18.104.22.168-167.hpfs.fc11.x86_64.rpm I downloaded the kernel-firmware-22.214.171.124-167.fc11.noarch.rpm package but I don't know what should I change in the kernel creation process in order for the kernel-firmware to be used? Thanks inadvance for any help.
