<sigh> Again, this isn't true. I build modules against our
kernel-source RPM tree all the time, and I *never* do a make distclean.
If I did, it would screw the tree permanently. If you are basing your
arguments about what you saw with 6.2, then you are sorely out of date
(hell, that was still a 2.2 kernel system). Things have improved a lot
since then. The one overridding rule of working with a tree like we
ship though, is *NEVER* do anything in the tree itself. That tree is
assembled to provide *ALL* the kernel versions and includes for all the
kernels we ship. However, even doing a make dep in the tree will blow
important parts away. Download my module build kit and see what I'm
talking about because you currently obviously *don't* know what I'm
talking about.
