Linux Kernel Source Tree Not found


I'm triying to compile a driver and I get the error message in the subject line. I downloaded the tarball and extracted it to /usr/src/linux-2.4.20.

What else do I need to do get this to recognize the source tree and compile?

With the old nvidia drivers, it looked for your source in "/usr/src/linux" - don't know if that helps. You can make a symbolic link to it as root by typing "ln -s /usr/src/linux-2.4.20 /usr/src/linux". If that doesn't work, see if you can look at the messages around it (or the script itself) to find out where it's actually checking for it, but I believe that's the standard.

If you're using RH's standard kernel, do you have a file on one of your install disks with a name like "kernel-source.nnn.rpm?

Got it!

Needed to install the kernel development packages. I was able to open the package manager from the KDE desktop menu (start button), it took a bit to load and required my redhat 9 cd #2 to install, but after it was done, the broadcom drivers installed normally.

I could use the directions that came with the broadcom tarball.
