Description Trevin Beattie 2006-09-30 02:00:53 EDT
Description of problem:
kernel-headers does not include the file /usr/include/linux/utsrelease.h, which
was split out from /usr/include/linux/version.h in kernel 2.6.18 (and apparently
in Fedora's patches to 2.6.17 as well).

The macro UTS_RELEASE is required by some 3rd-party software in order to rebuild
their kernel modules from source (in my case, vmmon/vmnet and fglrx).  If this
macro is not defined, the installers complain that the kernel headers don't
match the version of the running kernel.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install VMwareWorkstation-5.5.2-29772
2. Run vmware-config.pl
1. Download and run ati-driver-installer-8.29.6.run

Actual results:
The kernel module fails to compile.

Expected results:
The kernel module should compile and successfully load into the running kernel.

Nevermind; I found that utsrelease.h is installed under
/usr/src/kernels/{version} by the kernel-devel package.
