Which hello.c is it about ? A link please.
( I don't understand why bluetooth/* should be used.)

An example that works : Post #2 here

All you need to compile a simple module is an empty folder in /home/<name>/,
with hello.c and a basic module 'Makefile' like this one :
Code:
obj-m    := hello.o

KDIR    := /lib/modules/$(shell uname -r)/build
PWD    := $(shell pwd)

default:
	$(MAKE) -C $(KDIR) SUBDIRS=$(PWD) modules
Then : $ cd <new-folder> && make : hello.ko is created.

i had these files.
Code:
#include<linux/module.h>
#include<linux/kernel.h>
int init_module(void)
{
printk(KERN_INFO "HELLO WORLD");
return 0;
}
void end_module(void)
{
printk(KERN_INFO "GOOD BYE");
}
module_init(init_module);
module_exit(end_module);
Code:
obj-m += mymodule.o

all:
	make -C /lib/modules/$(shell uname -r)/build M=$(pwd) modules

clean:
	make -C /lib/modules/$(shell uname -r)/build M=$(pwd) clean
actualy my problem was http://http://www.linuxquestions.org...em-4175439981/
as you said i copied bound.c,but then it showed that problem for other files too. so i copied these all which were needed...and above
problem came..so say me something atleast about where am i wrong.

# 5

Don't know what's the meaning with line 12, 13 in your file :
module_init(init_module);
module_exit(end_module);

But when those two lines are deleted, the file compiles OK :
mymodule.ko is created

# 7 . The Debian / Ubuntu package names are : linux-image , linux-headers.

You already know the 'linux-headers' version : linux-headers-3.2.0-23-generic

The "kernel in use" : $ uname -r


'linux-image' and 'linux-headers' must be the same version, to make a module.
And the compiler gcc must be the same that was used to compile your working kernel.
That's most often the default gcc, but not always.
Ubuntu 12.04 : gcc-4.6.3 ?

i have gcc4.6.3,and
Code:
root@ubuntu:~# uname -r
3.2.0-23-generic
but the differnce seen when i tried..
Code:
root@ubuntu:~# dpkg --list | grep linux-image
ii  linux-image-3.2.0-23-generic           3.2.0-23.36                             Linux kernel image for version 3.2.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP
ii  linux-image-generic                    3.2.0.23.25                             Generic Linux kernel image
root@ubuntu:~#
is this difference...
i think it was because recently i downloaded headers-3.2.0-23.36,if so where i would get headers-3.2.0.23.25
