Description of problem:
I did a 'yum update' this evening that installed kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3 on my AMD64 system. After the update I tried to install my Nvidia drivers, which failed due to missing kernel source.
Previous kernel updates have created a build directory, i.e.
/lib/modules/2.6.11-1.35_FC3/build that contains the needed headers.
The kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3 created a symlink in /lib/modules/2.6.12-1.1372_FC3/:
build -> ../../../usr/src/kernels/2.6.12-1.1372_FC3-x86_64
which points to a nonexistent directory.
Without these headers, the drivers cannot be compiled.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum update to kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3
2. look in /lib/modules/2.6.12-1.1372_FC3/
3. build directory has been replaced with a symlink
Actual Results: build directory has been replaced with a symlink
Expected Results: build directory should contain correct kernel headers
