Question installing a VPN client - needs kernel header files


Hi,

My OS is RedHat 9
the installation script of my VPN client wants to know:

Quote:
In order to build the VPN kernel module, you must have the
kernel headers for the version of the kernel you are running.

For RedHat 6.x users these files are installed in /usr/src/linux by default
For RedHat 7.x users these files are installed in /usr/src/linux-2.4 by default
For Suse 7.3 users these files are installed in /usr/src/linux-2.4.10.SuSE by de
fault

Directory containing linux kernel source code []
now, which directory does (should) contain the kernel header files?

If you're using a kernel from RedHat, just install kernel-headers or kernel-source package (the same version as the kernel you have now) and it should be OK.

The default directory is, in general, /usr/src/linux.
