Are there any draft documents on this yet?
I have been confused by the presence of the three names...
  kernel-source-xxx, kernel-sourcecode-xxx, kernel-xxx.src.rpm

I generated a new kernel-2.6.5-1.3xx.root.src.rpm, then
did a build on it. This ended up with three outputs:
	kernel-doc-2.6.5-1.3xx.root.i386.rpm
	kernel-debuginfo-2.6.5-1.3xx.root.i386.rpm
	kernel-source-2.6.5-1.3xx.root.i386.rpm

What I want to do is
	1) recompile the silicon image device drivers 
	   (after making changes they suggested)
	2) rebuild the kernel and generate the .rpm's
	   needed to put back into the install tree.

I don't know how to generate
	kernel-2.6.5-1.3xx.i686.rpm
	kernel-smp-2.6.5-1.3xx.i686.rpm

I've seen warnings about being sure the versions of the
gcc etc. are exact versions.  It this still true?
I'm trying to use FC2 release as my build platform.

Thanks,
Joe
