    Why in the world are you all using envy any way. Just apt-get the driver. Automated stuff is always fail when working with special tools.

    Is there anyway to test for a corrupt symlink (instead of getting header issues :P) before I go mucking about with it anymore?

    Also, afaik.. Envy is just an automated script to apt-get the drivers. I'll still try it though.

    Code:
    # find . -type l | while read i ; do test -e $i || ls -l $i; done
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.

    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.

    Just delete the symlink and re link it to the kernel package, no harm done. Both balding parrot and I tried to recreate your error and were un able to. We were both able to apt-get envy with no issue what so ever. If you are unsure of what you are doing I can post the exact commands if it will help you out.

    This also totally works when you encounter compiling-problems in backtrack4 pre-final with the 2.6.29.4 Kernel!

    Thx, pureh@te!
