Patch in this message
SubjectPatch to scripts/mkspec

I've changed my patch a bit.

+ tarball is called: kernel-2.4.8-ac7.tar.gz
package: kernel-2.4.8_ac7-15.i386.rpm
kernel image: kernel-2.4.8-ac7-15
kernel itself: kernel-2.4.8-ac7

(I rather have the kernel named kernel-2.4.8-ac7-15 too so modules
don't conflict if you've got several builds from the same tree)

+ seperate documentation package
(I rather put this in a seperate spec-file and add a make doc-rpm)

+ .config is added to the package

+ use of macros (which is allowed since rpm v3 I think)
Alan, I know you disapprove this, but I'm not sure it matters
Documentation of RPM is bad though.

+ package now is eg. i686 if kernel is built for i686


+ you can install kernels that only differ in release-nr (except for modules)
+ packages build on the same tree (for different machines) have a unique
name (otherwise it is a sysadmin hell)


+ make it not i386-specific (as we use bzImage, right ?)
+ if the kernel is SMP, the package should say so
+ add the .version in the Makefile to KERNELRELEASE (so that the tarball
and modules-dir have a unique name for each build)
+ build the DocBook-stuff for the documentation (although you need more
dependencies, so moving it to a seperate spec-file makes sense)
+ add builddependencies (although this could be a distro-nightmare)

Could you give me feedback (as I didn't get a reply on my previous mail).

Thanks in advance,
