Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 20467
Kernel mismatched to linux include files.
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:29:43 EDT
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
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.....
