install script can not find kernel-headers
hi, everybody!

i am trying to compile a driver for an lt winmodem on an ibm thinkpad i series 1400. attempts failed because the kernel-headers could not be found.

i am using slackware v10.1 and i already re-installed kernel-headers-2.4.29.


1) how do i find the (default) installation directory for kernel-headers?
2) how do i create the link(s) that should enable the system or install script to find the kernel-headers?

thanks in advance.

You should be able to read the install script with a text editor ... look through it for where it looks for the kernel headers and you'll see what it is looking for as well as the how and where. Then, knowing what the script wants, it is simple to edit the paths to the place that those things are :)
