I'm trying to rebuild the RHEL kernel with the lustre patches, most
everything has gone okay one time through so far, but i ran into an
issue when trying to get OFED to compile against the new code
According to the Whamcloud wiki I am to perform this step
Add a unique build id so we can be certain our kernel is booted. Edit
and modify line 4, the EXTRAVERSION to read:
EXTRAVERSION = -lustre18
And then further down, this one
Go into the kernel source directory and issue the following commands
to build a kernel rpm.
make oldconfig || make menuconfig
1. No matter what i do, i cannot get the kernel version to come out
I can't seem to get EXTRAVERSION to take dashes, I end up with
2.6.18238.el5.lustre185 or given the example above 2.6.18lustre18, is
there a fix for this?
2. The resulting rpm does not include an initrd file. I can
certainly create one on my own, but is there a parameter or step that
will allow 'make rpm' to do that for me and include it in the rpm?
