In /usr/src is a folder named oss and a file named Makefile

so, what delete the folder/files in /home/grml or what?

what build directory?
no your doing good, keep the file structure

now when in terminal cd into /home/grml/oss oss being the folder you created

run /usr/src/oss*/configure and print what that output is, if it's complaining about the .h files again install your linux headers i think somebody just posted about that? once they are installed try everything again.

before you run the configure though you need to run 'rm * -R' in the /home/grml/oss dir to clear it of all files, you'll have to keep doing this as trial/error untill config completes =(

[edit] what distro are you using?

OOOO I just read, debian right???

run synaptic, search for linux-image, figure out what kernel image your using and install it's appropriate headers!!! If you want something easy you can also do this:

apt-ge tinstall module-assistant
m-a prepare

now run configure!!!

that should work either way you go about it. Oh if I would have thought about the debian part before. If you have apt-get problems or the headers can't be found give me the error, that's just simple apt configur stuff

/home/grml is probably his users homem dir, source wouldn't be there, linux source is in /usr/src/linux which is usually a sys link to /usr/src/linux-2.6.XX-versionstuff =P

/home/grml is probably his users homem dir, source wouldn't be there, linux source is in /usr/src/linux which is usually a sys link to /usr/src/linux-2.6.XX-versionstuff =P
I mean, does he have the kernel source installed ?

Ok so maybe you were right about the grml thing. Arrrg lol this is why I don't like 50x versions of linux out there. =( it makes this super lame haha.

I'm pretty sure it's a linux-headers problem
