Subject: dependencies on kernel

root@...t:~ # rpm -e kernel kernel-headers
error: Failed dependencies:
        kernel-headers >= 2.2.1 is needed by (installed) glibc-devel-2.3.6-owl12

I think all these dependencies should be removed, thus allowing the use of
locally built kernels without garbaging the system (yes, I know of "--nodeps"
option to `rpm -e`).

Also, these symlinks looks like a better way:

/usr/include/asm -> ../src/linux/include/asm/
/usr/include/asm-generic -> ../src/linux/include/asm-generic/
/usr/include/linux -> ../src/linux/include/linux/

So changing just one /usr/src/linux symlink changes all the headers.
