having trouble with make install


I'm trying to install ndiswrapper. I'm logged in as root and im the the /ndiswrapper-1.5 directory where I have my extracted files. When I try a make install i get this:

make -C driver install
make[1]: Entering directory '/tmp/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper-1.5/driver'
Can't find kernel sources in /lib/modules/2.6.11-1.1369_FC4/build;
give the path to kernel sources with KSRC=<path> argument to make
make[1]: *** [prereq_check] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory '/tmp/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper-1.5/driver'
make: *** [install] Error 2

[root@localhost ndiswrapper-1.5]#

Can anyone help?

yes, you need to install the kernel-source for your running kernel...

uname -a will tell you which kernel you have, then you can install that kernel via your distro's package manager.
