linux kernel/header mismatch


Hi guys,

been having trouble installing software with YAST and I've read that it may be due to a mismatch between my kernel source and headers versions. In YAST, my linux-kernel-headers version is 2.6.22 and my kernel-source and kernel-bigsmp are version 2.6.22.5. Are these compatible, and where can I get 2.6.22.5 headers if not?

Thanks

Jenser

The chances of it being a problem with the kernel headers are asymptotically approaching zero.
A (very) quick search turned up this thread for some background info.
Check the referenced thread by Linus - and note the date.

Perhaps you should tell us what problem you are seeing.
