Mismatch in kernel source tree name

Needing a kernel source tree, I did a

yum install kernel-devel

But there is a problem with the symbolic links.

In /lib/modules I have:


(I don't have a UP kernel installed)

and that contains a symbolic link build, pointing to:


But kernel-devel installs to:


(i.e. no smp).

So when I attempt a make in the ov511 2.28 driver source, it fails to
find the build directory for the running kernel.

What action should I take to correct this?
(change the build link, or try editing the makefile for ov511 driver)?
