make error: no such file or directory


I am trying to install a qualcom aircard driver. I am getting an error message:
/lib/modules/3.2.0-4-amd64/build no such file or directory

Am I missign a dependency for my compiler? Or do I need to tweek the Makefile file?

Does that directory exist? If so, do you have permissions to write to it? Usually build directories are associated with compiling a project from source and they just serve as a staging location for binaries and objects. Stuff in /lib/modules usually belongs to root.

Have you installed the kernel headers file? It should be called something like linux-headers-3.2.0-4-amd64 That's what you appear to be missing.

I did not have that installed initially. The machine that I am trying to configure does not have internet. That is the reason for the aircard project. Go into town with my laptop to a hot spot; download a .deb file; install it; try again; read the error messages; start over.
The last time I looked, the */build file was there, but empty.
