Hi Ben,

It is in /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.30-1-common/include/linux/skbuff.h.

And trying to configure with that fails too.

ykk at kkpc:~/openflow/openvswitch$ ./configure

checking for /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.30-1-common kernel version... 2.6.30
configure: error: Linux kernel source in
/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.30-1-common is not configured

I guess Debian changes their packaging.  This is a build system change?
