Dave,

Thanks, I'll try that sometime, but right now we have firewall issues that
make CVS inconvenient anyway.  I went with kernel.src.rpm and had no trouble
building a 1240 kernel.  But I'm having trouble with xen kernels.  I did (in
the right dirs):

rpm -Uvh xen-2-20050403.src.rpm
rpmbuild -bp --target=i386 xen.spec
cp /boot/config-2.6.11-1.1240-FC4xen0 .config
make

The make immediately complains about all the XEN config parameters
(nonexistent symbols), and then tries to run config which removes the XEN
parameters.  What am I missing?  I haven't been able to find any docs for
building xen targets.

Jeff
