Hi guys,

sorry, I was mostly away the last two days so you had to fight with
kernel-modules alone. I'll try to catch up and reply where I think it's

Anyway, I created a example package with kernel-modules for ndiswrapper
to play a bit with the discussed scheme. It

I maintain ndiswrapper (and some other kernel-module-packages) already
for livna. I just chooesed it for this example cause it's small, builds
fast and needs a userspace-program and a kernel-module.

I followed the example in the wiki and some posts on this list. I split
the package in a userland package that creates a %{name}-kmsrc.rpm that
is used by the kernel-module-package as source. Something like this
would be neat package like nvidia als ati drivers where a single srpm is
quite big if you want to rebuild only the kernel-module (yes, it seems a
lot of users of livna users do that).
