Bug Description

Ubuntustudio Beta 1 64 bit

This bug prevents adding anything that uses the headers, such as virtualbox. Therefore this should be considered a Blocking bug for the 13.04 release.

all the links in "/usr/src/linux-headers-3.8.0-14-lowlatency/" are broken...

they are pointing to "../linux-headers-3.8.0-14/"

but that directory does not exist, instead what exists is: "linux-lowlatency-headers-3.8.0-14"

the quick fix is

ln -s linux-lowlatency-headers-3.8.0-14 /usr/src/linux-headers-3.8.0-14

But the problem with this fix is that the next kernel upgrade will be broken again if it follows the same pattern

Opening against linux as well as they fix will come in via master even though the issue does not actually affect that branch.

Think I have this identified and fixed. Patch applied to master, which will be uploaded tommorrow, the lowlatency rebase which follows will carry it by default.
