kernel problem


The output for

rpm -qa kernel |sort |tail -n 1 is:
kernel-3.8.13-100.fc17.i686

the output for uname -r is:
3.3.4-5.fc17.i686.PAE

Now i am trying to install EasyCap DC60 on my fedora 17.

when i run sudo ./install.sh command its give me an error saying:
ERROR:cannot find directory /lib/modules/3.3.4-5.fc17.i686.PAE/build
Are the kernel headers installed correctly?

I have already installed the headers also i dont understand how to proceed further.
Can someone please help

You're clearly missing something but with information you're giving it's really impossible to say what. It's interesting that there appears to be nothing in the kernel drivers later than the kernel 3.6.0.5. The output of a search for easycap is shown below.
Code:
/usr/src/linux-headers-3.6.0-5.dmz.1-liquorix-amd64/drivers/staging/media/easycap
/usr/src/linux-headers-3.6.0-5.dmz.1-liquorix-amd64/drivers/staging/media/easycap/Kconfig
/usr/src/linux-headers-3.6.0-5.dmz.1-liquorix-amd64/drivers/staging/media/easycap/Makefile
/usr/src/linux-headers-3.6.0-5.dmz.1-liquorix-amd64/include/config/easycap.h
But I am using 3.9-6.dmz.2-liquorix-amd64. Maybe Easycap has stopped supporting linux?

First thing is why are these files in your home folder? Where do they come from?

hi yougant did you ever solve this problem? I'm trying to get an easycap dc60 usb to work in fedora 20 but I'm getting errors and brick walls. Google gives info of an Stk1160 driver but I can't find a download link anywhere. Thank if you can shed any light.
