Fedora :: Location Of The Directory Of C Header Files That Match The Running Kernel?
Oct 13, 2009
I am trying to install VMware on my machine. I have downloaded VMware and I am now trying to configure it. After accepting the EULA, the program states;
None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Server is suitable for your running kernel. Do you want this program to try to build the vmmon module for your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)? [yes] y Then;
Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override. What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include] The path "/usr/src/linux/include" is not an existing directory. What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include] /usr/bin/gcc The path "/usr/bin/gcc" is not an existing directory. What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running kernel?[/usr/src/linux/include] How do i find where the C header files are?
I am running VMware inside windows 7 64bit.I have installed ubuntu 2.8 ultimate edition on a 20gb partition and used 1gb of ram....everything is updated etc and running good. I checked in the VMware tools bar the entity tab,and says tools is not installed.
So when i run the install everything goes well untill it reaches the point where it says "What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running kernel?
I have tried everything,different tutorials,installed a build package etc and it still asks for the directory. here is the uname r output : uname r : 2.6.35-24-generic
I just had a hard drive failure on my mythtv box that I had been running F14 on. I reinstalled F14 and just got about everything up and running like normal again except that I upgraded the kernel by mistake when I was upgrading everything else to current levels. The problem is that I run a hauppauge pvr150 on this mythtv box, and the code for capturing on this card is broken on the latest kernel version. I have the kernel headers and development files installed for the newest kernel that I can't really use, but I didn't install the kernel headers for the older kernel before the upgrade. Now, I am looking for a way to forcefully install the older kernel development files so that I can compile my the proprietary nvidia drivers against it for my adapter. I downloaded the rpm files from the fedora 14 repository directly. Is there an option for rpm that I can use to force the installation?
I installed Codeblocks and build some programs, but I have two questions:1. Where are my header files placed, since I don't know where codeblocks is installed. Soemetimes I have to remove header file extension (.h) to be able to compile some source. I use gcc as setting for codeblocks to compile and build programs.2. Plugins for Codeblocks can be installed, but when browse codeblocks's wiki I can't find download links neither developer pages
Not I recently installed a package (Vision Egg) that requires the Open GL libraries and headers, specifically, gl.lib and gl.h. I used Synaptic to install nvidia-current and nvidia-current-dev and it now looks as if the required libraries (under different names) are installed in /usr/lib/nvidia-current and as if the required headers are in /usr/include/nvidia-current. I am a bit confused because I also have /usr/lib/nvidia and /usr/lib/nvidia-173.
The installation of Vision Egg fails with "cannot find GL/gl.h" and "/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lGL"There is a related post a few years ago under thread 200901 but it relates only to a single file problem that is fixed manually. I'd rather avoid that because it looks like it is easily breakable.Is there a standard way --- that is, a method that does not require error-prone manually changing or linking a multitude of file names --- of ensuring that programs which require GL/gl.h actually find the correct nvidia header file and also that the link loader finds the GL libraries.
I'm running BackTrack4r2 which is based on Intrepid. I'm pulling my hair out over this problem. As I try to install VMWare Server 2.0 I'm getting stuck at a question the installer poses: Where are the kernel header files located? It would make sense that they're in /usr/src/linux-188.8.131.52 but when I put that it just says there's no subfolder "linux" as expected and to try again. If I use the default location that VMWare says (/lib/modules/184.108.40.206/build/include) I get an error:
I used Backtrack 5 and Fedora, basically I'm trying to install my wireless card but I don't have these installed to make && sudo. I burned the iso images for backtrack and fedora and booted my computer from them but can't figure out how to install kernel-devel on backtrack for example. I dled yum onto my flash drive but can't figure out how to install it.
I`m trying to install Intel EXPI9402PT PRO/1000 PT Dual Port Server Adapter on my machine. I download the drivers for this card from intel web page, but I can`t make it work. I`m running OpenSuse 11.3 version. When I tried to install it for the first time I got this message:
Makefile:71: *** Kernel header files not in any of the expected locations. Makefile:72: *** Install the appropriate kernel development package, e.g. Makefile:73: *** kernel-devel, for building kernel modules and try again. Stop
Then I install the kernel-source package and I got this one:
Makefile:107: *** Linux kernel source not configured - missing version header file. Stop.
I also installed kernel-devel package, but I get the same message.
I am trying to install the Nvidia Quadro NVS 110 169.04 drivers but am having issues during install. Prior to attempting my install I did install the kernel-devel rpm so it can compile. after running the RPM I get. Quote: No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you like the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel from the NVIDIA ftp site [URL]?
which of course does not work. next it says Quote: "No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; this means that the installer will need to compile a new kernel interface.. i hit okay and move on to. Quote: Error: Unable to find the kernel sources tree for the currently running kernel. Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your kernel and that they are properly configured; on Red Hat linux systems, for example be sure you have the 'kernel-source' or 'kernel-devel' RPM installed. if you know the correct kernel source files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the "--kernel-source-path' command line option
I am running a vmware on a 64 bit fedora 9. I have already installed kernel header, but the vmware could not find the kernel header, and ask to input the kernel header path. I added /usr/include to the vmware, it complained not a right kernel header.
i have a c++ program and i tried to run it using gcc command and it gives header files error i got the header file now but dont know where to place those files?can any one got the idea??? we could not place header files in usr/include folder!
Does anyone know the kernel-headers location, or how to determine that location, in Fedora 13? I'm installing vmware-tools and it's prompting for it. /usr/include/ and /usr/include/linux/ were revealed to have many header files, as shown by doing rpm -ql kernel-headers
However the installer rejected these locations. My only guess as to why is because they're not where the currently-running kernel has them. I also tried /usr/src/kernels/(kernelversion).fc13.i686/include/ with no luck...
Going from Fedora 12 to 13. Got to the point where I have to reboot to install, system reboots to 12. This is a triple boot system with Open Suse and Mint, and the grub2 bootloader from Mint is the bootloader for the whole shebang. In the "how to use preupgrade" instructions there's a line that says "dentify the drive and partition of your Fedora /boot folder." How? If that sounds odd, consider that in my set up "computer" shows 4 partitions (and with just three operating systems..?). I can mount them, but have a problem telling which sytem is Fedora, Suse or Mint. And getting the FEDORA bootloader to find the PREUPGRADE kernel ... Momma said there'd be days like this.
cat /etc/fstab just returned /dev/sda1 on /boot. I installed Fedora first, before Suse or Mint, so being on the first drive or partition sounds right, but the multiple drives throws me, and "just guessing" doesn't seem like the way to go.
I installed fedora 12 very recently after which I installed a few files. I don't know where these files get installed. Is there a default location for newly installed files? If there is one, is it possible to change the location?
i want to copy a few files from my windows directory into the wine directory - its no big deal, just a few preference files so i dont have to set something up all over again. trouble is, i had the files copied, but i cant find the wine/ c: drive directory anywhere, anyone know where this can be found??
When I installed the suse11.3, I running the "uname -r",the system shows "2.6.34-12-desktop",for some reasons,i need the kernel header for "2.6.34-12-desktop". I down the "kernel-source", "kernel-default" and "kernel-desktop" and I check the "/usr/src/" path, but only have these stuff "linux-220.127.116.11-0.7 linux-18.104.22.168-0.7-obj linux-obj", where can I get the kernel -header for "2.6.34-12-desktop".
When is it good to use separate translation units and object files and link them into the main C program, and when is it good to include the header files in the main C program? I don't understand if most people include header files or if most people just link in object files and use their contents in the main program. It's sort of a simple question, but it's confusing to me and that's why I need help with it. I sort of don't understand the difference, or if there's really no difference other than the way the final result is achieved, which way is better or preferred, etc...
Simple explanation of the difference? or which one is preferred or better? I've read a little on the ELF format... so is there no difference in the end result? It's just a matter of preference or necessity, and where the information is to begin with?
I have an interdependent collection of scripts in my ~/bin directory as well as a developed ~/.vim directory and some other libraries and such in other subdirectories. I've been versioning all of this using git, and have realized that it would be potentially very easy and useful to do development and testing of new and existing scripts, vim plugins, etc. using a cloned repo, and then pull the working code into my actual home directory with a merge.
The easiest way to do this would seem to be to just change & export $HOME, eg
cd ~/testing; git clone ~ home export HOME=~/testing/home cd ~ screen -S testing-home # start vim, write/revise plugins, edit scripts, etc. # test revisions
However since I've never tried this before I'm concerned that some programs, environment variables, etc., may end up using my actual home directory instead of the exported one. Is this a viable strategy? Are there just a few outliers that I should be careful about?
After getting everything running nicely on 10.10 (after dozens of installs - long story, partially raid problem, partially noob, partially partitioning and Windows), I'm stuck with an unbootable 10.10.I selected all the "important security updates" when the update manager told me I needed to update everything. Upon rebooting, and picking ubuntu in grub, I get:
Error: unknown command 'record fail'Error: cannot read the Linux header Error: you need to load the kernel first Not exactly sure why at this point. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I can probably get in either through a 10.04 version that I have on another HDD, or through the livecd.
Note: if it's important, I did not elect to install the ATI proprietary drivers, and this is also the first update that I've done after installing medibuntu - a few boot cycles in between, so I don't think it's related.
