I've seen the other messages in the list about this, but haven't seen any solutions. Could someone please tell me how in the world I am supposed to fix this error? I'm using the most recent Xen packages for SuSE 9.3 (Xen 2.0.7/Kernel

rpmbuild -ba kernel-xen.spec

Installing kernel-source.rpm and trying to build a xen kernel doesn't work as the source trees for xen kernels and the other ones are slightly different. Thats true for both 9.3 and 10.0.

The latest 2.6.15-rc5-based suse kernels (http://ftp.suse.com/pub/projects/kernel/kotd/i386/HEAD, suitable for xen 3.0-final) have this fixed though, so compiling your own kernel will be easier with these packages ...
