On a related note; attached is a dkms config file for lustre *client*
kernel modules.

It will give you a deb containing the kernel modules, and will
auto-magically rebuild modules when new kernels are installed. (You will
still need to build the userspace deb as normal.)

Tested on ubuntu 10.04 / 2.6.32 kernel stream, but it should work on any
distro that supports dkms and runs a kernel that is compatible with the
lustre client.


Stick the dkms.conf file in the top of your lustre source directory and
copy it to /usr/src.

# register the source
dkms add -m lustre -v 1.8.7wc1

# build module for currently installed kernel.
dkms build -m lustre -v 1.8.7wc1

# optionally build for other kernel versions
dkms build -m lustre -v 1.8.7wc1 -k <other kernel versions>

# build a kernel-module deb
dkms mkdeb -m lustre -v 1.8.7wc1 --all
dkms mkdsc -m lustre -v 1.8.7wc1 --all

#rpm systems (not tested)
dkms mkrpm -m lustre -v 1.8.7wc1 --all
