Can't find modversion.h

Any one know where these are located on a Red Hat 8.0 install?
I need to update my modem drivers and the compile needs to access my include files and it errors on modversion.h It finds one in the include directory but that modversion.h file just says the include files are in another location that I can't find. Tried a search from the Redhat menu for the file and it only finds one (as above).

Anyone help?

Thanks in advance

kernel headers are in /usr/include/linux

I have a modversions.h there, but no modversion.h

$ updatedb &

$ locate modversion.h

[root@mongoose home]# locate modversion.h

$ locate modversions.h

[root@mongoose home]# locate modversions.h

might have to go into the source file thats including the .h file and hardcode the path into it (not a good thing to do per se, but itll work)

so if i had a file like: E.h:
and it contained:

#include <modversions.h>

i would just change that line to say:

#include </usr/include/linux/modversions.h>

and then everything would compile nicely
