Description of problem:
The kernel header files are missing. Instead, it installs a link:
ls -l /lib/modules/2.6.12-1.1372_FC3/build gives
"/lib/modules/2.6.12-1.1372_FC3/build -> ../../../usr/src/kernels/2.6.12-1.1372_FC3-i686", which doesn't exist.
Without the headers, one cannot compile kernel modules. For instance, I'm unable to build the vpn module which I use every day.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just install it.
"yum install kernel-devel" in order to workaround this problem.
