So, why is it building for PAE when the rpmbuild arg expplicitly
I have saved the .config file.
Are there kernel devs on this list who could advise me on the next step
I've had this since the beginning when I started building kernels from
source (FC5, I think). Even though "with/without pae" is an "option"
is hard-coded for i686/i386 architectures in the kernel.spec file (see
kernel.spec line 221 onwards). To change this, *every* time I compile a
kernel for i686 arch I do the following:
vi kernel.spec, then search for "with_pae 1" (line 223) and replace it
with "with_pae 0". Very ugly hack and it shouldn't be that way, but it
is not the first time things like this are propping up with the kernel.
Hope this helps!
