Re: [linux-lvm] Error compilng tools on RH7.3



No, the problem is that the LVM user-space tools are trying to use
kernel headers which should never be used from userland as they only
contain information which is useful for inside the kernel.

Keep in mind that /usr/include/linux does not always contain the same
headers as the kernel being used, instead being the headers that glibc
was compiled with.

IIRC, nothing is actually needed from linux/autoconf.h, so the proper
solution is that the file just shouldn't be included by liblvm.h

Cheers,

Jeremy
