Excuse me if I break the thread but I write you outside from my office with the webmail.
If the linux-source-2.6.15 package already contains the linux kernel headers, why in my linux-source directory I can't found the file autoconf.h (/usr/src/linux-source-2.6.15/include/linux/autoconf.h)? and in the linux-headers directory the file exist?
Please help me! :-)
