Hi guys. I'm trying to understand whats going on here with building or compiling a kernel source code ( in mandrake10 ) inorder to link up my newly obtained driver for my ati Radeon 9800xt pro.( they are the latest)
I've read the readme file that came with the kernel source code (confusing)
I've been to http://blahserver.greatnow.com/atihowto.html (not enough info as to whats going on)
I have as a source code > linux-2.6.6 < unzipped in /home/pauly/desktop/downloads
I have the source code patch > patch-2.6.6 < unzipped in the same directory
I have the ati radeon driver > fglrx-4.3.0-3.9.0.i386.rpm<unzipped in the same director as above.
So at this point I feel I'm ready to start umm building a kernel source code, i think.
To my limited understanding I believe I'm suppose to go into /home/pauly/desktop/downloads and in this window I'm to click TOOLS then OPEN TERMINAL . From here the dirctories shell konsole comes up.
[pauly@ujan downloads]$
From here I type > su - < to go after root, so i can be at a place where I can actually make the changes work.
ie. [pauly@ujan downloads]$ su -
then the password comes up
ie. password:
then the following comes up
ie. [root@ujan downloads]#
and its here I'm unsure as to what to do. they're is some confusion here. In this forum it say /usr/src/linux <--( i don't know what this is for ) I think its the next step but I'm unsure. and if so the Readme file that came with the kernel source code says Do Not use the /usr/src/linux because this area has a usually incomplete set of kernel headers that are used by the library header files. they should match the library, and not get messed up by whatever the kernel -du-jour happens to be.
So it comes down to me needing the exact text to type my next command.
and maybe a little/alot of explanation as to whats going on.
Thank you all who help in advance !!! :Uban the UberNo0berlinux user

same problem... help

Hello!

I've got the same problem, i think...

I've unzipped and installed vmware-tools, but the version that was installed does not support the shared folder feature for my kernel (i use Mandrake 10). When i type vmware-tools-configure.pl in the command line and that i try to compil the program for my kernel, linux tells me that i have to ensure that gmc, the sources of the current kernel, make and libutils are installed on the system. I installed the sources, but i can't find where the other elements needed are, when i use rpmdrake (installation program for mandrake). The installation of the kernel has let me go a little deeper in the process, but i can't complete it anyway...

Let's hope somebody will hear our sadness...

type: "which gcc" at the command line.
