    Question What's the explaination not to use 2.6 kernel headers?

    ... As a general rule, installing kernel headers
    that are newer than the kernel glibc was compiled with *may* cause problems,
    so unless you need these for a particular reason it's best to stick with the
    2.4.x kernel-headers package for now. ...
    It'll be good to know why if glibc is compiled with kernel X it is not good idea to install headers of kernel Y (Y > X).

    Thanks.

    the kernel headers are the 'API' of the operating system kernel, I guess the API needs to match the function calls .. possibly

    *throwing that up in the air*

    Started to understand the reason. However, in another forum somebody gave me the following link, which makes things even more clear:

    thanks very much, kern!
