where is kernel source tree ?


Hi,

While trying to install a Nvidia driver, I get error: Unable to find the kernel source tree for the currently runninig kernel.
The installer is trying to compile an kernel interface for my kernel.
How do I install the correct kernel source files or specify the correct path ?
Your help is appreciated
Thanks

It should be:
/usr/src/linux

You may need to install them though.

thanks for reply,
It wasn't in /usr/src/linux but managed to download it after looking around, also managed to install Nvidia driver, but still no TV out.
Still have to poke around
Cheers for now
