Failed to locate kernel symbol table


I want to install BLCR (https://ftg.lbl.gov/CheckpointRestart) from source. The problem is when I run ./configure, I get this error:
Code:
checking for Linux kernel symbol table... failed
configure: error: Failed to locate kernel symbol table.  Try using --with-system-map or --with-vmlinux.
What should I do next?

Listen to what the output says and try it... if it still doesn't work, then report back and let us know, we will troubleshoot from there.

Do you have all the required tools installed - build-essential maybe on Ubuntu ?.
Any reason for not using the package (apparently) in universe.

Just curious.... can you post the following:
Code:
cd /usr/src/kernels/`uname -r` && ls -al
