no - he's using:
grundler@debian:~$ uname -a
Linux debian 2.4.20-pa28 #39 Wed Mar 12 19:24:25 PST 2003 parisc unknown
unknown GNU/Linux

It's possible the kernel-headers he's using aren't clean.
Just in case, can you tell me which ones he should be using?

I'm ok with updating to -17 if you promise it won't do evil things
to my box. ;^)
