Details

Description: The current kernel26 pkg don't provide some headers that are necesary to compile some external kernel modules. An example of this can be vboxvideo with drm support [#1].

The current kernel headers directory from vanilla kernel (2.6.29.2) that are not part of kernel26: crypto drm keys mtd pcmcia rdma rxrpc trace xen

Maybe some/all of this should be included.

Additional info:
kernel26-2.6.29.2-1

I'd also like to add that trace headers will be necessary to compile virtualbox (vboxdrv) and broadcom (wl) modules in 2.6.30.

could you please just list the missing headers here?
Comment by Corrado Primier (bardo) - Monday, 04 May 2009, 12:31 GMT
The only header I found missing in my 2.6.30-rc module builds is trace/kmemtrace.h, included in /usr/src/$(uname -r)/include/linux/slub_def.h. For 2.6.29 is not necessary, though.

In the case of vboxvideo (2.2.2) needs drm/drmP.h, but drm/drmP.h needs: drm.h drm_os_linux.h drm_hashtab.h drm_memory.h
