reconstructing the original source tree for Fedora 8
I am trying to recreate the source tree from which the kernel of my Fedora 8 distro has been built.
I unpacked the "kernel-126.96.36.199-42.fc8.src.rpm" file using "rpm -i ( as root )" and I wind up with a whole whack of files under
There are a series of "config-*" files and another batch of "linux-2.6-*.patch" files. And then there are these guys:
I've looked around there is no "Readme" or "Install".
I have successfully patched and built vanilla kernels from "kernel.org" before so I am familiar with the kernel's "make" and "config" system
>but< this stuff appears to be arranged around the RedHat build system.
What do I do?
Just apply the patches to the source tree or is there some special
RedHat way of doing this?
I am grateful for any pointers.
