Re: Debian conflicts with FHS on /usr/include/{linux,asm}

   Ok, but let's take this back into the arena of FHS.  I hope that FHS
   isn't only for naive users.  [If FHS intends that distributions cannot
   support users with multiple kernels I'm going to be very disappointed.]

   According to the current FHS, as soon as you have a system which can
   boot two distinct kernels, the system is not FHS compliant.  This is a
   bad thing, in my opinion.

But only one kernel can be the one which boots by default --- for
example, if you just type "return" at the LILO prompt.    

It is also not naive-user-friendly to require the user to type a kernel
name each time the computer boots!

So which ever kernel boots by default when you power-on the machine and
don't type anything special to select a specific kernel should be the
one which /usr/src/linux points at.  Is that really unreasonable?
