Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 8973
/usr/include/scsi belongs to glibc-devel pkg and isn't a link to kernel includes.

I'm not sure if this is a bug/missconfiguration issue but I've just run
across it after an upgrade to 2.2.14.
After moving from kernel 2.2.13 to 2.2.14 I tried to recompile something
else and it couldn't find the /usr/include/asm stuff. This is reported in
bug #7574. (symlink: /usr/include/asm is pointing at
/usr/src/linux/include/asm rather than asm-i386) Looking at the other
links in /usr/include that I understand should be symlinks to kernel
includes I find that /usr/include/linux is a symlink pointing to the right
target but /usr/include/scsi is not. /usr/include/scsi is a directory
containing 2 header files and it belongs to the glibc-devel-2.1.2-11 pkg
rather than being a symlink to /usr/src/linux/include/scsi.
I may be completely mixed up (I'm not a linux guru.) but shouldn't
/usr/include/asm,linux,scsi be symlinks to the corresponding kernel
includes? Why isn't /usr/include/scsi a symlink to the kernel includes?
(belonging to the kernel-headers pkg)
I would like to just delete /usr/include/scsi and recreate it as a symlink
to the kernel includes but I'm not sure if I'll break something important
by doing so. I wonder because the kernel scsi include dir contains the
files 'scsi.h, scsi_ioctl.h, scsicam.h, and sg.h' where the glibc-devel
supplied dir contains only 2 headers 'scsi.h and sg.h'.
System is RH 6.1 w/relevant errata updates on a PII333. Yes I have
/usr/src/linux as a symlink pointing at the correct current kernel src. ;)
This is intentional; glibc-devel contains some generic not-kernel-specific
