Description of problem:
The just released FC3 update kernel 2.6.12 is missing the 'build' directory in /lib/modules/2.6.12-1.1372_FC3/. Instead, there is a dangling symlink to ../../../usr/src/kernels/2.6.12-1.1372_FC3-x86_64
The previous FC3 kernels didn't require the kernel source to be installed to build external modules, so I presume this is a packaging oversight.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update kernel to 2.6.12-1.1372_FC3
2. Try to build an external module (such as Nvidia drivers)
Actual Results: The build fails as the necessary files to build external modules are missing.
Expected Results: /lib/modules/2.6.12-1.1372_FC3/build should exist and be populated as per previous FC3 kernels.
Confirmed, I have the same issue but on i386 so it looks like the problem spans
the different arch releases also.
This looks like a dupe of Bug 163406
