Bad sym links in /usr/include
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:57 EDT
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....
It points to the headers matching the glibc library set not your current kernel.
This is correct for
all glibc systems
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
I'm not sure I agree with this resolution (though I admit I may not know enough
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.....
