Description tudor 1999-05-02 17:38:33 EDT
/usr/src/linux should remain a link to /usr/src/linux-2.2.5,
otherwise /usr/include/asm and /usr/include/linux will cease
to exist as valid links, and compilations will fail.

Comment 1 Dale Lovelace 1999-05-27 16:57:59 EDT
This is an ongoing debate on how to keep the /usr/src/linux link
around. Thanks for your input!
