Ndiswrapper - Cant find kernel sources while installing (Kernel 2.6.11)


I'm using slackware 10.1 kernel 2.6.11 (compiled recently), and when I do "make" to compile ndiswrapper an error occurs saying that it cannot find kernel sources in /lib/modules/2.6.11/build but the sources are there.. I already tryed "make KSRC=/usr/src/linux-2.6.11" and says the same thing. I dont understand why this happens.
Anyone knows something that can help me?

Regards.

hi there,

are you sure you have kernel sources instaled in /usr/src/linux?
can you post the error message - exactly - from the make script?
the modules are installed corrected in /lib/modules/$YOUR_KERNEL?
how this makefile looks like? sorry, i have no experience with this module.
maybe some grep will help
Code:
grep -i src Makefile
grep -i kernel Makefile
grep -i modules Makefile

regards

hi there,

yep. quite weird.
advice: try changing the variable KSRC direct in the makefile. edit it by hand.
call it again... somehow there is a problem with the link...

under Slackware you need to install the kernel-headers-<your kernel version> package.

check also if you have correct linked your /lib/modules/<your kernel version>/build to /usr/src/linux !!

ln -s /usr/src/linux-<your kernel version> /lib/modules/<your kernel version>/build

I had the same problem. But after I built kernel once, I could successfully build ndiswrapper.

Kernel build process generates a lacking file "version.h".
