Description daryl herzmann 2000-08-01 17:57:38 UTC
On two seperate installs now, I have had /usr/include/linux and /usr/include/asm point to the wrong directory. It points to the 2.4 headers and not hte 2.2.16. Or am I confused here....
Comment 1 Alan Cox 2000-08-01 18:32:35 UTC
It points to the headers matching the glibc library set not your current kernel. This is correct for all glibc systems
Comment 2 Brian J. Conway 2000-08-01 20:57:02 UTC
If this won't be changing accoding to your kernel, do you think then that it might be a wise idea to not have these symlinked at all? It would clear a lot of confusion to just have the necessary 2.4 asm and linux directories in include.

I'm not sure I agree with this resolution (though I admit I may not know enough to disagree). I just installed RH7 and installed the NVidia X4.0.1 drivers by hand. The instructions I was reading were referring to /usr/include/linux/autoconf.h, which was supposed to match my CURRENT kernel, which is very much 2.2.16. There was talk about setting the AGP module, etc, which to my knowledge doesn't exist under 2.2.x. I thought the NVidia driver knows what kernel to build for based upon these #defines. Correct me if I'm wrong..... - Matt
