Hi,

Love this program! I've taken the latest RPM and used
Alien to convert it to a .deb and running it on my
Debian 3.0 system to build a RedHat 7.3 filesystem
(convoluted, eh?).

Works fine until it barfs about the non-existence of
/usr/lib/uml/modules-2.4.tar

No problem, I figure this is supposed to contain the
modules from the UML kernel? I've got all of that in
/usr/lib/uml/modules so I figure I'll put that in said
missing tarball. Just wanted to know what the directory
structure of the tarball is supposed to look like.

Thanks

Andrew

    I was trying to install a RH 8.0 on a RH 8.0.

    It should contain the modules, starting from the root directory, but not including the leading /. For example

    lib/modules/2.4.22-5um/modules.dep

    FWIW, i'm using umlbuilder-1.50-3 and also seeing this problem.

    The workaround I found for this was to grab the compiled modules
    under /lib/modules/your-compiled-kernel/ and create a tar file
    using all the files in there. I think that's what it is looking for.
