Did not realize that I had to symlink *anything* when using the
packages. I know I do for source tarballs, but the packages are supposed
to do that automatically.

I am not saying you have to...I was asking whether it was there. If not,
and the kernel headers are in place, then the kernel/kernel headers
packager needs some flogging.

i'm gonna have to work on this. I'm going to use apt to download the
sources for everything and play from there. I really need to look at how
the kernel ppa debs do their thing. (I'm an old slackware boy when
EVERYTHING was done by hand, and I'm sort of caught in between pkg
management and hand crafting)

Thanks though. I think I'll try one more time and rerecord the errors
and see what the hell its bitching about specifically. It looks like
it's looking for some env var to be set describing the kernel it should
be built against, but that would negate multiple kernel installs for
DKMS modules if that were true.

You would have to build for each specific version of the kernel. If you
are building for the current running kernel and the headers are in
place, then it should have gone through. If you are building for another
kernel version, then you have to tell it where to find the headers, of
which a symlink in the appropriate version's module directory will do if
the headers are installed.

fglrx now supports DKMS? (sorry...been a LONG while since I last used an
ATI card)

the fglrx monitors for new kernels and when you install a new one it
looks for the kernel headers and uses them. same for if you installed
every single kernel the normal repositories have available. its not
doing that for the kernel/ppa kernels.

If you are talking about this ppa:
https://launchpad.net/~kernel-ppa/+archive/ppa
that only contains -21. I see no -19 there.
