installing ivtv make error


Sorry if this is obvious or has already been asked, I'm a newbie who DID use the search engine

I'm running Xandros 3.2 and am attempting to install my pvr-150. When I cd driver, then type make, it returns this:

make CONFIG_VIDEO_IVTV=m -C /lib/modules/2.6.11-x1/build M=/home/chris/ivtv-0.3.7a/driver modules
make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.11-x1/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
make: *** [all] Error 2

I'm not really sure why that directory is missing, as I've installed kernel-source (2.6.11) and kernel-headers(2.6.11-x1) using Xandros Networks. I also have installed gcc, gcc++, and libc6-dev.

This happens with every ivtv build, not just the experimental ones.

Any suggestions?

once you have the kernel source installed, there is usually a symlink from that build directory to the kernel source (i *think* it's just the base /usr/src/linux-xyz dir) I'd guess that symlink wasn't there (or maybe you didn't install exactly the right source package. so go create it, or see if the link is broken.
