make: File not found: /lib/modules/2.6.18-elive/build/


Hi, i'm trying to intall my webcam on elive 1 and after the "make" command this error apperars to me:
File not found: /lib/modules/2.6.18-elive/build/

I installed build-essential and linux-headers-$(uname -r) (what I thought it was necessary!)but the error is still there...Do I need other packages? Have I to link the kernel source ?(if it's the case, how?)

ciao clhona

/lib/modules/<version>/build should be a symlink to the kernel source for <version>, so you'll likely have to install that as well, and perhaps make the symlink yourself.

Code:
cd /lib/modules/2.6.18-elive
ln -s <path-to-2.6.18-elive-source> build
The ln command will likely have to be run as root, so either su or prepend sudo to the command depending on how elive does things.
