I downloaded my kernel source rpm version, uname -a, from the site. When I installed the rpm it put it in ~rpmbuild. In the past didn't it put it in /usr/src/redhat? Did this change? I'm running Centos 6.

Why would you expect the kernel to be built in a directory called "redhat" if you are running CentOS? Anyway, what is your question exactly? If you are observing a different behavior to what you are used to then clearly something has changed :). Is this causeing you problems? If so how? – terdon Jan 25 '13 at 18:47

What did it change to? Why, and is it documented anywhere? – Justin Richard Bleistein Jan 25 '13 at 18:57
It isn't. Check the mailing lists. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Jan 25 '13 at 19:22
