Description of problem:
WHile trying to install nVidia twinview drivers, the nVidia "build" process failed because it could not find the kernel "source tree". It is looking for "kernel.h" which was not installed with this kernel (as it was with 4 previous FC3 releases). The upgrade (via YUM) produced two bad links "build" and "source". I found this to be true on 4 machines - two with AMD processors and two with Intel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. "yum remove kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3"
2. run "up2date" and install the above kernel
3. from root privilidge attempt with "nautilus" try to locate "/lib/modules/2.6.12-1.1372_FC3/build/include/linux/kernel.h"
Actual Results: The "build" folder is listed as a broken link.
Expected Results: I should have been able to drill down into "build/include/linux" and find "kernel.h"
I rated this bug as "high" because it renders this release unusable on my software development machine. I will continue running "kernel-2.6.11-1.27_FC3" on this machine until a repair is available. The 2.6.12-1.1327 release works on the three other machines which do not have dual-head video.
