Bug#652955: Naming inconsistancy? can cause dkms/m-a problems
 
Package: linux-headers-3.1.0-1-common
Version: 3.1.5-1
Severity: normal

--- Please enter the report below this line. ---
I am not sure this package has the bug but here goes:
If I have the same kernel version installed for both i686 and amd64, for
example. The debian nvidia kernel modules will dkms successfully on both while
the debian virtualbox kernel modules will dkms only for one of them. I would
assume this applies to m-a as well since going to /usr/src and doing make (OK)
and sudo make install (FAILS do to architecture inconstancy).

If there be differing linux-headers....-common for differing architectures,
they would need unique packaging just as the headers themselves.

Maybe this is not the problem and someone more knowledgable could accomplish
as simple work-around, i.e. with some EXPORT=....

Worth a look.
