make: *** [all] Error 2


Hello all!

I'm working on installing Debian on my old PowerMac G4 system. I'm trying to install the drivers for my wifi card. I followed the instructions, and tried to do "make all". It said:

make: command not found

To respond I did:
apt-get install make

However, now when I try to do the "make all" command, I get this output:
joey-ppc:/home/joey/Desktop/2007_1210_RT61_Linux_STA_v1.1.2.0/Module# make all
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.26-1-powerpc/build SUBDIRS=/home/joey/Desktop/2007_1210_RT61_Linux_STA_v1.1.2.0/Module modules
make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.26-1-powerpc/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
make: *** [all] Error 2
joey-ppc:/home/joey/Desktop/2007_1210_RT61_Linux_STA_v1.1.2.0/Module#


Can someone tell me what is causing this, and how I can fix it?

Hi -

'Sounds like you might be missing the kernel headers.

I'd try this:
Quote:
apt-get install kernel-header
You might also consider any/all of:
Quote:
apt-get kernel-package
apt-get install baseutils
apt-get gcc
apt-get clean
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
apt-get dist-upgrade

'Hope that helps .. PSM

I haven't really used Linux before other than just some random poking around on a friends laptop, but I got the feeling I'm doing something the wrong way...

joey-ppc:/home/joey# apt-get install kernel-header
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Couldn't find package kernel-header
joey-ppc:/home/joey#


And also

joey-ppc:/home/joey# apt-get install build-essential
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
build-essential is already the newest version.
build-essential set to manually installed.
