Urgent newb question about driver installation error. Help!!


I just installed a modified version of Fedora Linux (2.6.15-2.5). I need to install a RAID card driver, whenever I do a make install, it has this error message:

[root@localhost lnx_drv_esasraid_100b7]# make install
Architecture is x86_64 (x86_64)
make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.15-2.5/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
make: *** [modules] Error 2

What needs to be done? What kind of kernel header do I need, where and how do I install it?

Thank in advance.

I am guessing you are building a kernel?
Look over this post on the correct steps to build a kernel.

You need to install kernel-devel for your specific kernel first. Have a look in your /boot directory for the file that begins with "vmlinuz", take note of the numbers, then look on the dvd for a kernel-devel that has the same. You can double-click it and it will install.
