I'm interested in packaging blcr as an rpm using dkms. In order to do this, we need to separate the library build and kernel module build. In other words, the library build would produce one rpms, and the dkms would be a package of the module source. Installing the dkms kernel rpm would just install the source into /usr/src/blcr-xxxx. At boot dkms would do configure, make if required. I don't think blcr is packaged to allow this right now, since it expects to have a top-level dir above the kernel source dir where configure was run (I say that because the kernel module Makefile has a lot of refs to ../, so I'm assuming it won't work as is). Any thoughts? Interest?
