From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Description of problem:
I'm not sure this belongs to the gcc part of the bug report but I 
need the header file vmalloc.h which USUALLY belongs 
to /usr/include/linux/ to compile some driver. Unfortunately, I have 
installed a brand new Fedora core 1 with all necessary development 
packages and the header file is simply not there. Is it included in 
some hidden rpm? If yes where? Why isn't it default?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora core 1
2. /usr/include/linux/vmalloc.h doesn't exist


Actual Results:  not there

Expected Results:  should be there !

Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2003-12-22 05:46:00 EST
You're trying to use /usr/include/{linux,asm} headers for building
kernel modules? If so, don't. They are there solely for userland.
Kernel modules must use -I/lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/include/
Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2003-12-22 05:50:30 EST
Userspace has no use for /usr/include/linux/vmalloc.h.
