Description Ron Eastman 2005-07-22 17:32:24 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050720 Fedora/1.0.6-1.1.fc3 Firefox/1.0.6

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.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just install it.

"yum install kernel-devel" in order to workaround this problem.
