I'm a newbie running Ubuntu 7.10
I've been trying to install the Headers update but I keep getting the error below.
I've checked the folder which is throwing up the error but it does not exists. When i try to create it using "sudo mkdir dvb" in the folder I keep getting a "permission denied" error.
