[App_rpt-users] Using SVN copy of Asterisk on RaspberryPi (and "usb.h")

Hi all,

Just as an update, I've cloned the git repo for RPi, and it has what
should be the 3.2.27+ kernel source in it. Unfortunately for me, when
I go to "make" Zaptel, it still tells me I don't have the required
kernel sources. Now, I have put the symbolic links in the /usr/src
directory, still no dice.

I have just checked the github.com site, and lo and behold, 3.2.27+ -
hmmm, rather interesting.

Is there any other processes or files that I may still require to try
to get the thing to realise I've just downloaded the kernel source?

Many thanks for your help...!
