    Default VERIFIABLE BUG: missing Makefile_32.cpu from linux-headers-2.6.35.8

    Hi,

    I was using bt4 on virtualbox w/ guestadditions installed w/ no problems.

    Then I just tried upgrading to kernel 2.6.35.8 using the instructions here
    http://www.backtrack-linux.org/wiki/index.php/Upgrading

    Then guestadditions stopped working. I tried to reinstall it similar to these instructions: http://www.backtrack-linux.org/wiki/...ng_BT4_In_VBox

    But now it won't install and gives me the following error msg:
    Code:
    Failed to install using DKMS, attempting to install without
    make KBUILD_VERBOSE=1 -C /lib/modules/2.6.35.8/build SUBDIRS=/tmp/vbox.0 SRCROOT=/tmp/vbox.0 modules
    /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.35.8/arch/x86/Makefile:39: /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.35.8/arch/x86/Makefile_32.cpu: No such file or directory
    make[1]: *** No rule to make target `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.35.8/arch/x86/Makefile_32.cpu'.  Stop.
    make: *** [vboxadd_test] Error 2
    The problem seems to be w/ the missing file /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.35.8/arch/x86/Makefile_32.cpu from the linux-headers-2.6.35.8 package. But this file just so happens to be referenced by another file inside that same package (/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.35.8/arch/x86/Makefile line 39), which makes it a bug.

    missing file: /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.35.8/arch/x86/Makefile_32.cpu
    in package: linux-headers-2.6.35.8

    referenced by file: /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.35.8/arch/x86/Makefile
    in package: linux-headers-2.6.35.8

    Why not get the latest Backtrack 4 R2 VMware image and import it in VirtualBox and then install guest additions, that should work.

    Because I already have a lot of stuff configured the way I want and I should be able to perform a simple upgrade w/out it being bugged.

    Any ideas who I should contact to fix the package?
