Description Brian Daniels 2005-07-15 20:51:57 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4

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):

How reproducible:

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
