Lightbulb To all those having problems compiling from src.rpm

I have spent several days trying to figure out what the problem was. Accidentaly, in one of the topics I read,thet the kernel sources are specific by version (of course). My mistake was that I did not have an upgraded kernel source installed. I had two kernels, and a kernel source that came with RH 8.0. After installing an upgraded source, everything worked fine. I still got errors during compilation, yet the binaries were written allright, and everything works fine.
Oh yeah... I have added a nologin user "buildmeister" to get rid of the nagging warnings.

Hope this helps... Good luck, everyone!
