Question linuxtv-dvb-1.1.1 make error


I've a problem doing make by the linuxtv-dvb-1.1.1 (driver for a dvb tv card from When I type make in the /linuxtv-dvb-1.1.1/build-2.6 directory I get the following error:

Makefile:8: /lib/modules/2.6.4-54.5-default/build/.config: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `/lib/modules/2.6.4-54.5-default/build/.config'. Stop.

I'm using Suse 9.1 with the standart 2.6.4-54.5 Kernel. In the directory /lib/modules/2.6.4-54.5-default/ there isn't a directory named build, when I create a link with konqueror to the directory /usr/src/linux/ it also dosn't work. Any idea how to get it running?

Hey M4tt. That driver doesnīt install/support properly the 2.6.x kernel. The only way I could get things to work was to download the cvs from linuxtv. This is like the current version (but that hasnīt been released as a version yet.

I then had to make links to the devices it created in the /dev/ because it didnīt seem to use the standard naming structure.

Good luck!!

but what method did you use to make these links? I also tried from the CVS directory, on both mandrake 10 and suse 9.1, I get the same identical errors. and also these versions do not have the files /lib/modules/2.6.4-54.5-default/build/.config

Does not exixt in either mandrake 10 o suse 9.1 do you have any suggestions?

Ok it seems like we are going round in circles. You need to make sure that you have the kernel source installed cut and paste the output from ls -l /usr/src
