Re: build depends on kernel-headers

>In short, how do you do them?

What do you want to do with them?

There are a whole load of wacky special source dependencies (*LINUX24-HEADERS 
and so on) which seem to be trying to solve variants of this problem.  But 
this mechanism doesn't seem to be all that robust either.

I think the whole idea of putting the kernel version number in the name of the 
headers package is pretty bogus.  It would probably be better to just have a 
"kernel-headers" package which installed itself in /usr/src/kernel-headers; 
then you could declare dependencies on "kernel-headers (>= 2.2.19)" or
