Description Till Maas 2008-07-07 14:54:42 EDT
Description of problem:

I would like to compile an kernel module, that needs some header files that are
in /drivers/usb/core of the kernel source. But the kernel-devel package does
only include a Makefile and a Kconfig file in this directory, when I do
ls -la /usr/src/kernels/*/drivers/usb/core
I have the packages kernel, kernel-devel and kernel-headers installed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.6.25.9-40.fc8
Comment 1 Dave Jones 2008-07-07 21:35:03 EDT
either upstream needs to move the relevant files to include/ or the out of tree
module needs to only use interfaces exported there.

either way, it's out of scope for the Fedora kernel.

dm has a similar problem IIRC.
