    Like when did you start developing for Linux?. We go back as far as 1991. OK?
    No need for such attacks. Look Andrew thinks we have a problem here and let's
    work this issue out for the betterment of Linux.

    The problem with SuSE is that /lib/modules/2.6.5-7.75/build is all screwy. Either
    you do the right thing like Fedora or Redhat and ship the proper KBUILD environment
    or link it to /usr/src/linux and atleast have the kernel headers intact.

    Additionally, there are glaring problems with their headers. Why don't you
    take a look at - it's a diff against
    Linux 2.6.5 and it's 12.8Megs of diffs!. For heavens' sake, with so many diffs
    they should be calling their kernel 3.x or something or stop using the Linux 2.6.xx naming
