Where is my linux_src


I am trying to create a Linux Wireless Driver for my HP ENVY desktop. I know I shoudn't but I am trying to get it out of the lving room and upstairs into the office so I can get my wife out of the equation.

Anyway back to problem,
I have this statement in the README file:

In Makefile
set the "MODE = STA" in Makefile and chose the TARGET to Linux by set "TARGET = LINUX"
define the linux kernel source include file path LINUX_SRC
modify to meet your need.

where is the LINUX_SRC that it mentions? If you can help, thank you.

The Makefile is normally in the top level of the source tree (and one for every layer under it in many cases). Sometimes in a subdirectory ./src/ or ./sources/ depending on coding preferences. Instead of doing the usual ./configure && make && make install you would do something like $(make -f Makefile). It sounds like you are to EDIT the Makefile. All of which assumes that you have a system configured for compiling sources and other things.

To get the source for the Redhat, CentOS or Fedora kernel, do (as root): yum install kernel-devel

In general, <rpmname> lets you use the code, and <rpmname>-devel provides the header files needed to develop against it.

Shadow_7,
is the subdirectory under the Makefile directory or another directory?

Each directory under the main one will have it's own Makefile in many cases. But for simple things there may only be one directory of files.

$ find . -iname '*makefile*'
