Description shawn.karow 2000-11-07 14:16:05 UTC
I was attempting to build a module, earlier built on Redhat 6.2, on RedHat 
7.0. The module built no problem but when I went to install it I got the 
following error:

Warning: kernel-module version mismatch
/data/56/Release/pikadsp.o was compiled for kernel version 2.4.0-0.26
	while this kernel is version 2.2.16-22 

We include files from /usr/include/linux so I go there to check out the 
header files. I open version.h and indeed the kernel is defined as being 
2.4.0-0.26 even though I am running the 2.2.16-22 kernel. It seems to me 
that the header files included in the install are mismatched to the actual 
kernel that is installed.

I have a standard 7.0 Redhat install with no other kernels downloaded or 
installed on my system.

/usr/include/linux are the _GLIBC_ headers, not the kernel headers.
The kernel-headers are in  /usr/src/linux/include.
For Red Hat 6.2 these happened to be the same, but that was coincidence.....
