I want to build a new 05-devel.xzm and I did a xzm2dir to see what I needed but I seen this kernel-headers-4.9.12-x86-1 I want it for kernel 4.9.67. My question is what module do I need for the kernel-header?
I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

In short, the minimum version for the kernel headers should be the version which glibc was compiled against. These are the headers which match the library object files. You can use newer kernel headers without problems.

I want to use kernel 4.8.67 but I can use 05-devel.xzm from 4.14.2? I am using 001-core and 002-xorg from 4.14.2 and kernel 4.9.67 with my Mate build. And it seem to be working great together.

I like to stay your current but right now I can't.
