Shouldn't this be switched? I mean:
ln -s /usr/src/linux-`uname -a|tr -s ' '|cut -f3 -d' '` linux

However, this doesn't help. On this server I don't have a compiled kernel.
I have that one from debian package. I downloaded kernel-source package
but it's not enough. What is the installer looking for? Is there any other
kernel package I should install to solve it? Or do I have only way to
compile kernel by myself?
It would be no problem but I don't want to restart the server.
