Description Tom Horsley 2006-09-17 00:40:41 UTC
Description of problem:

I'm trying to build truecrypt on FC6t3 with the 2647 kernel
and kernel-devel installed, but the drivers/md/dm.h file
that the truecrypt kernel module needs is missing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to follow the truecrypt build instructions, pointing it to
the installed kernel-devel src tree
Actual results:

Don't build

Expected results:


Additional info:

I could swear I remember a thread in the mailing list that said this
was just an oversight that would be fixed in the next kernel-devel
release, but it ain't fixed yet.

Comment 1 Dave Jones 2006-09-17 01:09:43 UTC
This is a device mapper internal file, not meant for inclusion by anything else.
If it was, it would be in with the rest of the ABI includes in include/

If it's valid for this to be included by out-of-tree drivers, it needs to move
to include, which is something that should be done upstream.
