I'm trying to build an old(ish) kernel (18.104.22.168-46-fc11.i586) on an
up-to-date F-11 system, but I keep getting a build failure. I have
tracked it down to the following.
At the beginning of the %install stage, it executes
'[' /u/home/hsn/rpmbuild/BUILDROOT/kernel-22.214.171.124-46.fc11.i386 '!=' /
rm -rf /u/home/hsn/rpmbuild/BUILDROOT/kernel-126.96.36.199-46.fc11.i386
but there are already files in that directory that have been created
earlier in the build process and are needed for the install (see
extract of build log below).
I notice that when kernels are build in koji, this rm ... does not get
executed, but also, looking at other packages' build.log in koji (the
example I took was rpm itself), then the equivalent rm command is
I cannot see where the rm ... command comes from, or how to stop it.
Can anyone give me some pointers?
