Package: iscsitarget-dkms


Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I was installing iscsitarget-dkms on a brand new Wheezy system.

In aptitude I disable the feature 'Install recommended packages automatically'

when installing the package I received the error


Setting up iscsitarget-dkms ( ...

Creating symlink /var/lib/dkms/iscsitarget/ ->


DKMS: add completed.

Error! Your kernel headers for kernel 3.2.0-4-amd64 cannot be found.

Please install the linux-headers-3.2.0-4-amd64 package,

or use the --kernelsourcedir option to tell DKMS where it's located

Press Return to continue.

---end snip---

Since the kernel headers are required for this package to install properly

maybe consider making the linux-headers package a depends package.

Thank you,
