modem driver compile error in suse 9.0


I am having Pctel Chipset Internal modem(56k dial up modem) and using Suse 9.0, earier when compiling and installing the modem driver in slackware i didnt have any problem but in Suse I get this error.

checking for running kernel version...2.4.21
checking for ptserial...ptserial-2.4.7.c
checking for gcc...3.3.1
searching for kernel includes...found at /usr/src/linux/include
checking for modversions.h...** error
modversions.h could not be found
you probably need to configure your kernel

Now what went wrong and where do I configure this kernel??

I was browsing around the sources and found this dir
/usr/src/linux-2.4.21-99-include

Where there is a file called modversions.h now what I need to do? I tried copying it to /usr/src/linux-2.4.21-99/include/linux and then tried compiling the modem driver and I got many errors.

Kindly help me.

First, what distro are you using? You can get the kernel-source using kpackage.

Then, you have to make sure that the Linux kernel source is in /usr/src/linux-your version

Then run "xconfig" from a command line under root

Make changes if you want, be careful, if you don't know what it is, don't change it.

Save and exit.

It will tell you what to run next.

Usually it is "make dep"

When it is done, you should have modversions.h
