NOOOO. If you have, say linux-image-2.6.15-1-686-smp, the headers package that MATCHES YOUR RUNNING KERNEL is: linux-headers-2.6.15-1-686-smp This will install that and a few other packages it depends on as well, like: linux-headers-2.6.15-1 kernel-build-<something> package-foo bar-package (examples those are, yes!) Once you have the proper linux-headers in place, most if not all things that need to compile against the headers will do so without problems. One thing you need to remove though, the linux-source-2.6.15 directory and the "linux" symbolic link to that linux-source-2.6.15, otherwise, you will get compilation errors. -- greg, firstname.lastname@example.org The technology that is Stronger, Better, Faster: Linux Use Debian GNU/Linux, its a bazaar thing NOTICE: Due to Presidential Executive Orders, the National Security Agency may have read this email without warning, warrant, or notice, and certainly without probable cause.
