This problem is caused by the way how the ELDK is packaged.
At the moment, the ELDK kernel headers are not packed into a
separate "kernel-headers" RPM to avoid duplication, because
the kernel source tree is always installed.
Instead, the ELDK "kernel-headers" package is just a set of
symlinks. This worked fine in the past, but fails with the
new support for ARCH=powerpc systems.
The next version of the ELDK will contain a real kernel-headers RPM,
which will fix this problem.
As a workaround on current systems, you can install
the real kernel include files into the
To do this, the following commands can be used:
bash$ <eldkroot>/bin/rpm -e kernel-headers-ppc_<target>
bash$ cd <eldkroot>/ppc_<target>
bash$ rm usr/include/asm
bash$ tar -xvzf kernel-headers-powerpc.tar.gz
The tarball mentioned above can be downloaded here.
It contains the include files that get installed
by running the
"make ARCH=powerpc headers_install" command
in the Linux kernel tree.
This problem is fixed in ELDK 4.2 and later releases.
