Description Mark Adams 2005-07-15 22:27:37 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
The just released FC3 update kernel 2.6.12 is missing the 'build' directory in /lib/modules/2.6.12-1.1372_FC3/. Instead, there is a dangling symlink to ../../../usr/src/kernels/2.6.12-1.1372_FC3-x86_64

The previous FC3 kernels didn't require the kernel source to be installed to build external modules, so I presume this is a packaging oversight.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update kernel to 2.6.12-1.1372_FC3
2. Try to build an external module (such as Nvidia drivers)

Actual Results:  The build fails as the necessary files to build external modules are missing.

Expected Results:  /lib/modules/2.6.12-1.1372_FC3/build should exist and be populated as per previous FC3 kernels.

Confirmed, I have the same issue but on i386 so it looks like the problem spans
the different arch releases also.

This looks like a dupe of Bug 163406
