Installing Drivers on Mandriva- Installed Kernel Source but not found.


Hi,

I am trying to install the Eagle Chipset drivers for my Sagem 800 USB ADSL Modem.

I have untarred the source code, and try to run the make command...
Quote:
[root@siege Desktop]# cd ueagle-atm-1.3
[root@siege ueagle-atm-1.3]# make
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.12-12mdksmp/build M=/root/Desktop/ueagle-atm-1.3
make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.12-12mdksmp/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
make: *** [all] Error 2
[root@siege ueagle-atm-1.3]#
It does appear that I have Kernel source installed:

[root@siege 2.6.12-12mdksmp]# uname -a
Linux siege.mshome.net 2.6.12-12mdksmp #1 SMP Fri Sep 9 17:43:23 CEST 2005 i686 Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.80GHz unknown GNU/Linux
[root@siege 2.6.12-12mdksmp]# urpmi kernel-source
The package(s) are already installed
The following package names were assumed: kernel-source-2.6.12.27mdk
[root@siege 2.6.12-12mdksmp]# urpmi kernel-source-2.6.12.12
no package named kernel-source-2.6.12.12
I appear to have the lib/modules folder:
Quote:
[root@siege 2.6.12-12mdksmp]# cd /lib/modules/
[root@siege modules]# ls -l
total 12
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Feb 10 2006 2.6.12-12mdksmp/
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Nov 12 22:00 2.6.12-15mdkcustom/
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Nov 12 22:00 2.6.12-23mdksmp/
But no build folder

I am sure I am doing something wrong... but dont know enough to figure out what.

I have tried googling this, other people using Red Hat have had this problem and been directed to dowloading the source code but I already have this installed...

Thanks for your time reading, and hope you can help!

As you can see from the red parts, you have kernel version 2.6.12-12mdksmp (SMP-enabled kernel) installed (if I read that right). You seem to have sources too, but they are version 2.6.12.27mdk (not -12mdksmp). This might cause problems, since if you need kernel sources for something that's going to work with the running kernel, the sources need to be of the (exactly) same version than the kernel to be run is. So in this case you probably need to search, download and install kernel-source-2.6.12-12mdksmp or if you can't find them, install a kernel for which you can find the sources for.

Even if you felt like the version number doesn't differ that much, it does. This might not be the whole problem, but surely a thing you will want to fix first; having wrong-version kernel source installed might cause weird problems even if you were able to compile the code you intend to.
