Odd compile error on Debian Testing


#make
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.8-1-386/build SUBDIRS=/usr/src/modules/ipw2100/driver MODVERDIR=/usr/src/modules/ipw2100/driver modules
make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.8-1-386/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
make: *** [modules] Error 2
debian:/usr/src/modules/ipw2100/driver# make: *** [modules] Error 2

I am stuck. What could be wrong?

I haven't installed any packages beyond the basic "desktop" setup from the installer, but g++ and binutils are both installed.

If I'm not mistaken you need to install the kernel-build package for your kernel. That should take care of it. This is because you are using the precompiled kernel image from the cd and have not made your own kernel

have you checked to see if any of the directories listed actually exist?
