I will check (I use 2.6.21). But I was able to do a lot of building of
mono :) Just curious.
Again (out of curiosity) - have been most of previous kernel patches
incorporated to upstream? I check kernel src rpm yesterday and
see just 3 alpha specific patches and I remember a lot (especially
module patches to support bigger modules). :)

I think so, I just confirmed Jay's report. The "exact" error message I

Yes. I just have no idea (tried to read about koji, but have not got the
idea from first try) what is the common scenario to incorporate patches.
If it the same as it was before - make it work localy, then build SRPM
and upload it to koji... or some more sophisticated way - just upload
patches and changelog and it magically gets into SRPM. :)

During linking of shared library ld complains about some kind of
relocation problems on one of the modules from static library used
(boheim GC) in building. This is something I haven't seen before....
