Severity: important
Tags: squeeze

Tried to build lustre modules with command "module-assistant -t build 
lustre-source" and got message:

checking for 
/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.32-5-openvz-amd64/include/linux/namei.h... no
checking if you are using Linux 2.6... no
checking that modules can be built at all... no

namei.h actially located at 

Then I made a symlink:
 /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.32-5-openvz-amd64/include/linux/namei.h -> 

And started building with the same command again. Got message:

checking for 
/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.32-5-openvz-amd64/include/linux/namei.h... yes
checking if you are using Linux 2.6... yes
checking for external module build support... yes

I'm sorry but you used a not supported kernel according to the output 

Please note that you need for the server side one of these kernels:
 - 2.6.18- (OEL 5)
 - 2.6.18-164.11.1.el5 (RHEL 5)
 - (SLES 11)
 - (SLES 10)

For client support you have to use one of the kernels listed above or the 
vanilla kernels from in the specified versions: 
 - 2.6.16 - 2.6.30 vanilla (

Please refer to the Lustre Support Matrix here:


ps: furthermore the full sourcetree must be available for building the 
lustre modules, even the client modules, linux-header packages won't help.
