modem driver installation gives the error modversions.h not found
 
hi i am a newbie...

I have novell linux desktop.
I have a pctel modem . When i try installing the pctel driver it needed the kernel sources.

I now have the kernel sources in /usr/src/linux . But now it is giving the error called modversions.h not found in /usr/src/linux/include/linux.

Can u suggest me any ideas...'

Some where i read that doing make dep in the directory of sources creates the file. But this command gave the warning "make dep is unecessary now" and no file was created.

I also tried creating an empty file there but not result.

Awaiting a response....
Bye.......

Try the following:
first make the sources available to your user:

Code:

cd /usr/src/
su
<root-password>
chown -R <username> linux
exit

now clone the configuration:
Code:

cd /usr/src/linux
rm .config
zcat /proc/config.gz > .config
make oldconfig
make prepare

Now try to install the driver again. Good luck!
