Description paneal 1999-01-10 22:02:22 UTC
/usr/include/asm is linked to /usr/src/linux/include/asm
which does not exist

I placed a link in /usr/src/linux/include linking asm to
asm-i386 as my fix..

you need to do 'make symlinks' in /usr/src/linux

Comment 2 regs 1999-11-24 02:56:59 UTC
Actually, this *is* a bug, as it's broken (i.e. the symlink is not created) in a
stock RH 6.1 install.  Seems to me that the link should be there after
installing and users should *not* have to run 'make symlinks' to get software to
compile.  But maybe that's just me.
