The main x86/x86_64 builder is indeed running RHEL6, though something
much closer to GA than Beta. :)
Its currently running mock 1.1.4, but 1.1.5 is available in epel. I
think we rolled back to 1.1.4 due to some issues with 1.1.5 though.
Mock 1.1.5 /finally/ fixes the bug surrounding making the /dev/fd
symlink exist in the build chroot which is used by the kABI scripts. A
more detailed explanation of that is here:
The kmodtool source I used is this:
Can we have one magic kmodtool script to rule them all? I'm not sure.
There are some differences between kABI and kmodv2. The ELRepo folks
have opted for always including the kmodtool in the src.rpm. I think it
would be fairly reasonable to have one kmodtool for each packaging
