hi there,

not sure if this will answer your questions, but...

yes, as Julie said, no RPMs should be checked in

though the CGLE kernel source is not a part of the build system root jail,
it does get installed on the machine after it is compiled during the build
process.  It is the first component that gets compiled and installed in the
build process, so any other user-space component that is being built during
the build process will have the CGLE kernel already installed, and therefore
**there is no need** to add that into a "installRequiredRPMs.sh" script.

The quick answer is you shouldn't need to check in any RPMs to be able to
compile your code.  I did that in event logging initially before we had a
build system, but that piece should actually be undone.  (Actually, I think
I did undo it in the Makefile, but I left those RPMs in the bin/ directory,
and they should be removed now.  Sorry about that oversight on my part.).

In the case of the kernel source RPM, I further think you don't even need to
specify that RPM in your Makefile because what you need is already in the
build system root jail.  But, I'll cc Rolla because she will know for sure.

Thanks.

Hi,

When making event log validation suite rpm package, I need to compile a
kernel module which is depended on the CGLE kernel source. I just wonder if
I need to check in the kernel source rpm so that the kernel source can be
installed by the script "installRequiredRPMs.sh" before making the test
suite rpm and be uninstalled after that. Or anybody has some better way to
do that.

Thanks,
