/lib/modules/2.6.7/build/ - where is it?


im trying to compile a driver for my wireless card, ive tried several different approaches, but it always looks in /lib/modules/2.6.3/build/ for version.o and stuff like that... Where can i get those files to be able to make the driver? Reading a troubleshooting site it says that it means i don't have my kernel source installed, but i have it installed (with apt-get), untared and have a symbolic link in /usr/src/linux . I've tried searching around the kernel source and headers for a build folder but i haven't found any... Anyone know what to do? This is to compile the acx100 driver with my 2.6.7 kernel. Thanks

/lib/modules/$KERNEL_VERSION/build should be a symbolic link pointing at the kernel source. make modules_install creates the link. You probably need to install the kernel source for your distro.

Next to make modules_install you can also just create it yourself. I did that a couple of times.
