Question about linux-libc-headers-2.6.12...


Hi,

does anyone know when linux-libc-headers-2.6.12 will make its appearance? I've been visiting Mariusz Mazur's page on a daily basis since the 2.6.12 linux kernel has been released, but there isn't any update, and I've seen today the kernel tree has jumped from linux-2.6.12-git10 to linux-2.6.13-rc1-git1, so... now that the kernel tree is going towards the next version, the libc headers can be released in a few days, or maybe there's no official release date and we'll have to wait some more days (or even weeks?)

yeah i know...its time for the linux-2.6.13 headers to start making an appearance.

go here: http://ep09.pld-linux.org/~mmazur/linux-libc-headers/

he has the 2.6.12.0 headers now...but now I need the 2.6.13, so I can start using grsec again in the kernel..!

go there as often as you want to stay updated to mmazur's progress on the linux-libc-headers.
Although, you can probably do the headers yourself, just like its done in the LFS 5.* book, using the 2.4 kernels.
Take a look at that book and you should be able to use the kernel headers directly.

at least in the 2.6 kernel series, it's supposed to NOT being an elegant solution to use straight kernel headers, but precisely it REFUSES to compile the next package due to the headers being too old

its not, but 2.6.13 is the only version of 2.6.13 series available (as far as stable is concerned). So its the only headers available.

However, try this.
The initial kernel headers and installation sets the lowest possible kernel version to use. If you use the kernel headers and the kernel of 2.6.12.5 to build your system. Once the system is built, turn around and apply the 2.6.13 patch file to your kernel (best results, leave the kernel vanilla before doing this). Once that is done, you should hopefully be able to use 2.6.13 and patches thereof.
