Installing DRI Fun :D... I need help...


It says this is where they are

Kernel Version : 2.4.21-144-default
Module Directory : /lib/modules/2.4.21-144-default

I have checked and those directories exist.



it gets upto here

The script will now compile the DRM kernel modules for your machine.

Press ENTER to continue or CTRL-C to exit.



then it tells me this

Compiling...
ERROR: Kernel modules did not compile

The DRI drivers can not be installed without the latest kernel modules.
Installation will be aborted. See the dri.log file for information on
what went wrong.



and in dri.log

Makefile.linux:140: *** Cannot find a kernel config file. Stop.


so now I'm lost...

Thanx in advance for any help.

I'm running SuSE 9.0 (I only install'd 2days ago, and i've run depmod -ae)

Install the kernel-source and/or the kernel-headers packages that correspond exactly to your kernel version and you should be able to build it.

If your kernel source is installed you will most likely find it in /usr/src, and /usr/src/linux should be a symbolic link to the directory where it is actually installed (say, /usr/src/linux-2.4.21-144-default or something to similar effect).

Go in /usr/src/linux, do a "make menuconfig" and just save and exit without doing anything, then try to build drm module again.
