I am running Fedora 17 on x86_64.
I wanted to build bluetooth kernel module for f17 so I could use it under f17.
I did this:
rpm -ivh kernel-3.3.4-5.fc17.src.rpm
rpmbuild -bp /root/rpmbuild/SPECS/kernel.spec
It went well.
Then , I went to /root/rpmbuild/BUILD/kernel-3.3.fc17/linux-3.3.4-5.fc17.x86_64
configure a kernel where CONFIG_BT=m (for bluetooth as a module) and ran
However, when I try insmod for
"Invalid module format".
bluetooth: version magic '3.3.4 SMP mod_unload ' should be
'3.3.4-5.fc17.x86_64 SMP mod_unload '
In the Makefile I have:
VERSION = 3
PATCHLEVEL = 3
SUBLEVEL = 4
NAME = Saber-toothed Squirrel
but uname -r shows
where is the .4-5 came from ? could it be that applying this rpm has some
error in that it does not set extraversion to .5 ?
