But I'm using a kernel that I have built and installed myself, so the headers 
should be fine! (The default kernel supplied with Slackware64-14.0 is 3.2.29) 
Everything else is running and compiling fine on 3.6.3

OK, I can see that you are making the compile point to a specific location to 
find the headers (which I thought I'd already done by making a symbolic link to 
my kernel source tree, but I'll double check...) but to follow your logic, I 
need to know where you are starting from! Am I right that KLIBCKERNELSRC 
should point to my kernel source tree? (In my case, this is in 

Thanks for your help! Although I'm not a programmer, I do regularly compile 
stuff, and usually manage to sort myself out, but this time, I've got confused!
