Description of problem:
/usr/src/kernel-2.6 link to current kernel source does not appear after installation
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
This link may be usefull for compilation of some drivers and special kernel modules.
this is done on purpose; the management of that link was really messy.
In addition you can't use the files in /usr/src/kernel-2.6.anything
for buildling modules against (just as you really shouldn't in 2.4 but
it worked there by accident).
Well, is this bug/feature? And why in /usr/include/linux obsolete
even in 2.2 and 2.4 modules HAVE to build against
/lib/modules/`uname -r `/build/include
just it happens to be that that is a symlink into /usr/src in those
older kernel rpms.
OK, I see, it's my misundrestanding, sorry for annoying you :-). Have
a nice day.
