Description Bill Adams 2007-02-27 20:33:03 EST
Description of problem:
kernel-devel/kernel-headers (2.6.19-1.2911) is missing drivers/md/dm.h which
makes building truecrypt impossible.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
All, testing with 2.6.19-1.2911

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install kernel-devel and kernel-headers
2. Note that /usr/src/kernels/2.6.19-1.2911.fc6-i586/drivers/md/ does not
contain dm.h
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
Copying that one file into the kernel tree allows truecrypt to build.
Comment 1 Dave Jones 2007-03-19 16:31:38 EDT
If drivers/md/dm.h is something external modules should be compiling against
(which I'm suspecting they shouldn't given its full of device-mapper internal
defines), it should be moved to include/  This is something that should happen

Comment 2 Doug Mitchell 2007-03-26 16:12:49 EDT
The truecrypt module seems to reuse code from the md module, but it is not a
cleanly defined external interface.  What is the best way to handle building
this module into a kmod package?
