Re: Can't compile pcnet_cs

From the error reported here, I think you should put
-I/usr/src/kernel-headers-2.2.15/include instead of just plain
-I/usr/src/kernel-headers-2.2.15

I can see that gcc try to use linux header files from glibc
/usr/include/linux instead of those in the kernel
/usr/src/kernel-headers-2.2.15/include/linux which mighe be needed for
your pcmcia_cs.c.

many other distributions ship glibc with linux header file /usr/src/linux as
a symlink to /usr/src/linux/inlcude/linux, including RedHat.

I think SuSE does the same thing.
