Description roger.bivand 2000-06-30 16:10:09 EDT
rpm -Uvh kernel-headers-2.2.16-3.i386.rpm removed my /usr/include/linux
and /usr/include/asm symbolic links, meaning that gcc couldn't find
headers (both egcs aka gcc-2.91, the 6.* standard, and gcc-2.95.2 from

fix: rpm -ivh --force kernel-headers-2.2.14-12.i386.rpm

Shouldn't updating a package set up the links? /usr/include/linux & asm
were simply not there at all after upgrading.
Comment 1 roger.bivand 2000-07-03 02:59:06 EDT
Typo in summary: /usr/linux/include should be /usr/include/linux

Both my machines also run libsafe, but are otherwise standard RH6.2. No libsafe
messages in /var/log/secure (had there been buffer overrun events in any of the
actions undertaken during rpm update, libsafe would have aborted the component

Although on kernel upgrade I had gcc-2.95.2 from Mandrake, the problem was the
same after removing these and installing egcs gcc, so it seems to point at
something missing in the upgrade process for 2.2.16-3 headers - the symlinks for
earlier kernel headers get removed, but no new ones put in place.
Comment 2 roger.bivand 2000-07-10 10:51:15 EDT
Looks as though #13517 is the same (even if mine is i386 and the other sparc).
Comment 3 roger.bivand 2000-07-12 03:47:27 EDT
This has been reported as #13517, #13711 - see comments there too
