Making sure the correct kernel headers are used
 
I currently working with a Fedora Core 7 machine. I recently compiled and installed a new 2.6.23-rc5 vanilla kernel. My question is how to tell Fedora to use the kernel source when compiling packages that _need_ to use them.

Thanks,

There should be a symbolic link inside of the /lib/modules/kernel directory that points back to the location of the kernel source code.

When you compile software while running that kernel, it will use this link to automatically build against the proper source tree.

Thanks, that is exactly what I was looking for. Good answer
