Hi all,

I'm running into several compilation problems (the latest versions of mol
and pbbuttonsd), and have been told that this may be due to incorrect
or missing kernel headers.

So I checked, and found that Slackintosh (11.0) installs the 2.4 kernel
headers. AFAIK this is the right thing to do, even when one runs a 2.6
kernel, if glibc is compiled against a 2.4 kernel. But since Slackintosh
does not even have the option of installing a 2.4 kernel (unlike x86
Slackware, of course), I suspect the entire distro was compiled against a
2.6 kernel.

Is this correct? And if so, why does Slackintosh provide the 2.4 kernel
headers anyway?
