The infamous application that needs access to kernel source is part of Asterisk system of PC controled telephony, more precisely its zaptel driver (the driver that communicates with the PCI installed hardware). In order for the whole system to work, first thing required is installation of zaptel driver. Hence, when trying to install it, I got the error about kernel source not being present.
The next few steps were taken according to this tutorial at:
how to install FC5 kernel source
and that's when the error and warning messages started appearing.
I need to make zaptel see the kernel source since many things rely on its ability to communicate with the specialized hardware. More info about asterisk telephony atasterisk telephony server
. You very well may find this open-source project interesting.
I have also looked for kernel-devel packages on the installation CD's and there are two:
Any of those that may be usefull?
P.S. Thank you for your attention avivg, if you assume that you are spoonfeeding a linux newbie, you assumed right. I didn't get the part with the symbolic links, not clear to me how to link the source to something that is not installed...
