Description wolfson_curt 2002-05-17 12:28:02 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020513

Description of problem:
I tried to compile deferent componets that require the kernel headers in 7.3
such as LVM tools 1.04 or a qlogic driver for a EMC array
The result is a massive error. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.extract the code 
2.do a configure (that works)
3.do a make 
4. componet fails

Actual Results:  driver fails with errors. text log file will be provided

Expected Results:  drivers should return no errors

Additional info:

I built the 2.4.18-4 kernel on a 7.2 host and compiled all the same drivers and
components with no issues

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2002-05-20 12:21:32 UTC
The LVM userspace<->kernel interface is not stable and as a result we don't
supply the header. Kernel drivers NEVER EVER should use the glibc headers;
qlogic just can't write makefiles it seems.
