	Betreff: [PVE-User] Self build kernel sources/ includes for
modules /drivers such as zaptel 1.2 on VE0
	I've been working in a sandpit for nearly a month with ProxMox
VE. ProxMox VW is beautiful, I can't stop recommending it within my
circles. This VE is based on a Debian AMD64/x86_64 distribution with a
SMP kernel. I'm all for Debian, but rightly or wrongly the 2.6.24-openvz
file sets seem to be biased towards RPM based builds and at this moment,
I'm wary of pulling these down. 
	With the need to put the finishing touches on an asterisk based
multi- VE/cluster (to allow it to do all it can already do but with
enhanced trunk timing, music-on-hold and conferencing). It appears that
to do this I will require some compilation of a timing and fairly well
known VE0 peripheral mod namely the zaptel 1.2-track driver. 
	Subsequently the sub-ordinate VEs would be granted access /
bridged to /dev/zap/timer and /dev/zap/ztdummy through vzctl +
	ProxMox have published the kernel's binary packages on the FTP
site but I cannot find the headers necessary for compiling a module such
as zaptel. 
	I've accomplished a compilation by gathering what appears to be
correct from the repositories but the resultant binary's flags have so
far embedded the 2.6.24 'OVZ' patch details on the object code. So
modprobe has attempted and then unloaded the driver and complained that
the module was tainted. I could perhaps patch the Makefile but this
seemed a good moment to ask for the ProxMox team to offer their
kernel-sources (ie the include files). 
	There is a timing resource that might also need the ProxMox
kernel recompiled to support 1000Hz ticks rather than 100Hz or 1024Hz. I
haven't found where in /proc this setting might be visible, if at all. 
	Is this possible to provide please? 
	If not, could someone compile and offer the zaptel 1.2.25
drivers and publish the .ko please? 
	Thanks in advance, 
	Rgds... Richard
