Yes, we're still using FC6 on our build server. I built a kernel with
F8 yesterday, though, and had to make two changes:
* GNU tar no longer allows you to (e.g.) "tar xf foo.tar '*.h'" without
adding a --wildcards before the pattern. In the specfile, change:
* The debuginfo packaging failed. Adding:
%define _enable_debug_packages 0
to the top of the specfile disables that part of the build, and
produced a working kernel package.
Hope that helps.
