I think Solar has already replied to a similar message of yours. It looks like you are missing the point of having the kernel-headers package. This package is irrelevant to the kernel you are building. The main purpose is to supply the user with headers that were used at the compile time of glibc and other parts of Owl, and if you follow your approach of building packages with headers from a newer kernel -- you might experience some weird behaviour. All in all, I think there is some misunderstanding on your part and the kernel-headers package in Owl is good and should be preserved as is. > Also, these symlinks looks like a better way: > > /usr/include/asm -> ../src/linux/include/asm/ > > So changing just one /usr/src/linux symlink changes all the headers. ... and introduces a possible interface incompatibilities between packages linked with old headers (the whole Owl) and packages you build using new headers.. Huh, this is not nice :). -- (GM)
