[Gluster-users] problem building fuse on CentOS 4

Hi Matt,

     Check the rpm spec file for few more options to specify the kernel and

#   --define "ksrc <srcdir>"
#       Build with kernel header files found in <srcdir>.
#       By default, the build script will try to find the kernel headers
#       matching the specified kernel or, if no kernel was specified, the
#       current kernel.
#   --define "kernel <version>"
#       Specify kernel version to build the module for.
#       By default, the version is derived from the kernel source files, or
#       failing that, from "uname -r".

      If you have kernel source in non standard path or looks like you have
src release tag different than the kernel installed.

      Check if you have ls -l /usr/src/kernels/ and uname -r match. If they
don't match then a proper work around to fix this is to use --define "kernel
<version>". Let us see give it a try, if there are issues then we can look
into it.
