The script "create_clean_kernel_tree" fails trying to locate and execute a
program called p_tupdate. Where can I get this program?
Also, many scripts require the top directory to be /usr/src/redhat but the
rpmmacros file (cmd/xfs/build/rpm/rpmmacros) references
/usr/src/linux-2.4-xfs. I created a symbolic link so that
/usr/src/linux-2.4-xfs points to /usr/src/redhat. Was that the right thing
Thanks again for your help!
