Description of problem:
After booting kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3 for the first time, I was in the process of rebuilding the NVIDIA driver and found that it was failing saying that I didn't have the source. After a bit of checking I realised that the "kernel-source-path" defaults to /lib/modules/2.6.12-1.1372_FC3/build. I then found that this was a broken symlink:
# ls -l /lib/modules/2.6.12-1.1372_FC3/build
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 47 Jul 26 09:21 /lib/modules/2.6.12-1.1372_FC3/build -> ../../../usr/src/kernels/2.6.12-1.1372_FC3-i686
I guess I *could* provide source in this directory, but the NVIDIA driver compile worked for me ok under the previous package (kernel-2.6.11-1.35_FC3).
I have noticed a number of SMP problems relating to this kernel, but I am using the UP version.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3
2. ls -l /lib/modules/2.6.12-1.1372_FC3/build
Actual Results: symlink was broken and pointing to ../../../usr/src/kernels...
Expected Results: should be directory similar to previous kernel builds
