Fedora Core 9, make error


yes, I searched, both her, google, and a few other forums, but I have not gotten any luck....


I did find to check whether or not build-essential was installed, and if automake was, and they both are.





this is the cmd I'm trying to do:

[root@localhost ipwraw-ng]# make
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.25.6-55.fc9.i686/build M=/home/hat/Download/ipwraw-ng modules
make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.25.6-55.fc9.i686/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
make: *** [modules] Error 2

Usually build is a symlink to the kernel source directory, so I suggest you check whether or not you've got the kernel source package installed.

Does that mean I should get kernel-2.6.25.6-55.fc9.src.rpm and install it?

Thanks

I think that's right. You might want to look at this, too.

Usually with RH based OSs all you need it the kernel-devel package (must be an exact match to the installed kernel).
