"Make" error while trying to install Realtek ALC892 sound driverin Kubuntu 12.04


I was having sound problems. The sound stuttered. I'm using Kubuntu 12.04. I'm using the sound chip that comes with the motherboard. ECS Z77H2-A2X. I'm using the analog output.

So I tried to re-install the driver using a method (Installing Realtek ALC892 Audio Driver on Linux Mint) posted here:

http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/1236

When I ran "Make" I got the following error:

cc1: fatal error: /lib/modules/3.2.0-45-generic/build/include/linux/modversions.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
make[1]: *** [memory_wrapper.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/larry1204/Downloads/realtek-linux-audiopack-5.16/alsa-driver-1.0.24/acore'
make: *** [compile] Error 1
root@larry1204:/home/larry1204/Downloads/realtek-linux-audiopack-5.16/alsa-driver-1.0.24#

When I looked there is in fact no modversions.h in the path. There is one in /lib/modules/3.2.0-45-generic/build/include/config --but when I look at the file with Dolphin it indicates the file has 0 bytes.

What would be the next step in getting Make to run to completion?

Have you installed the linux-headers package for your kernel.

The file "modversions.h" has got a new location in kernel 3.x.x :
include/config/modversions.h
3.2.0 http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?se...ecise&arch=any

Yes the linux-headers are installed. How do I get Make to look in the right path for the modversions.h file?

Before running make did you run configure? Is there a configure file to run that is included in the source code?

Yup. On my system it's here:
Code:
/usr/src/linux-headers-3.9-6.dmz.2-liquorix-amd64/include/config/modversions.h
$ ls -l /usr/src/linux-headers-3.9-6.dmz.2-liquorix-amd64/include/config/modversions.h
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 giu 16 00:41 /usr/src/linux-headers-3.9-6.dmz.2-liquorix-amd64/include/config/modversions.h
It also has 0 bytes so I guess that's what it should have.

No matter now. RealTek posted a new driver build. It ran fine except it screwed up my system. Long log in. Grub menu will no longer start listed OS's after a time interval. I suppose I'm going to have to re-install my OS.
