Fedora :: Can't Find / Install Headers For My Kernel - Sort It?

Jan 27, 2010

I am trying to install a piece of software that uses an install.pl script which looks to /usr/src/linux/include/ for my kernel headers...but it never finds them or that directory/link.

I've run "yum install kernel-devel kernel-headers" so I am pretty sure they are installed.

My "rpm -qa | grep kernel" returns code...

What am I missing?

General :: Can't Install Kernel Headers In Arch / Sort It?

Mar 4, 2010

I'm trying to install the "kernel26-headers" package in Arch so I can (try to) compile the Intel 865G graphics drivers from off their website (I can't get H/W acceleration working with xf86-video-intel, but I know the thing has a GPU, because if I boot a Knoppix CD that I have, it enables Compiz by default, and it works damn well).

Any time I try "pacman -S kernel26-headers" I just get a bunch of errors spat back at me code...

Now, I have tried enabling all the US mirrors (HTTP and FTP), and I have even tried a couple of FTP servers in Canada and even Great Britain. None of them seem to work at all!

Is there any way I can get this package?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Kernel-headers Locks Up Server / Sort It?

Mar 17, 2010

Last night at 1:47 AM yum installed the current version of kernel-headers on my RHEL5 server:

Mar 17 01:47:47 linux1 yum: Updated: kernel-headers-2.6.18-164.15.1.el5.i386
Mar 17 13:47:22 linux1 syslogd 1.4.1: restart.

This locked the server up until I could physically get to it this afternoon and reboot the server. I then finished downloading and installing the new kernel, rebooted again, and the server appears to be running fine.

This is the second time this has happened on this server.

Has anyone else seen this problem when you setup yum to automatically update your servers? Other than manually updating servers, does anyone have any suggestions on how to keep this problem from happening again?

Fedora :: Install True Headers Instead Of Using Kernel-devel?

Debian Configuration :: Module Assistant Can't Find Kernel Headers / Work Around This?

Jul 25, 2010

I'm trying to use module-assistant to add the vboxdrv using instructions also found here in the debian forum. However, m-a can't find the linux-headers because it looks for the package linux-headers-2.6.32-5-trunk-686. I attempted to specify were the headers were by using:
m-a prepare --kernel-dir /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.32-5-686/
but also doesn't work. Instead, I get the error:
Bad kernel version specification at /usr/bin/m-a line 566.
Anyone knows how to work around this?
By the way, the reason I am doing this is because when I installed virtualbox (following the instructions in debian wiki) there's no vboxdrv. When I try to modprobe it, I get:
FATAL: Module vboxdrv not found.

Red Hat :: Install Ethernet Adapter Driver - Not Finding Kernel-devel Or Kernel-headers

Aug 30, 2010

I'm attempting to install the driver for my atheros AR8131 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet adapter (in my Lenovo laptop) on my newly installed RHEL5 system (it's not currently being recognized).

I tried using: 'make install' but hit an error "Makefile:61: *** Linux kernel source not found."

After this, I tried: 'sudo yum install kernel-devel kernel-headers'

To rectify this, but hit this error "No package kernel-devel available" (and the same for the headers). What should I do?

CentOS 5 :: Can't Install Kernel-headers Glibc And Glibc-headers?

May 11, 2010

Yesterday, I think I did something stupid: I removed kernel-headers, gcc, glibc-devel and glibc-headers. My box is a CentOS 5.4 webserver (it has loads of packages installed, but that was done through Virtualmin config, so it's quite coherent all in all). The thing is that now I need to reinstall at least the headers and glibc, but hey! this is what I get :

Ubuntu :: 9.10 - Kernel Upgraded - But Won't Install Headers ?

Aug 23, 2010

I'd like to upgrade a live ISO file before burning a new CD.

So, following the instructions in "How to Customise the Ubuntu Desktop CD", I chrooted to the squashfs and ran "apt-get update/upgrade/dist-upgrade", expecting apt-get to upgrade the chroot kernel... only to find out that apparently, even when being chrooted, this command upgrades the actual kernel. I guess it makes sense, but I was under the - wrong - impression that chroot would build a filesystem totally isolated from the underneath host.

So I rebooted to use this new kernel:

Next, since the Nouveau video driver requires the kernel header files, I ran the following:

Code:

I don't understand why apt-get upgrades the kernel but won't install its header files.

Fedora :: Kernel-headers Location ?

Aug 29, 2010

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...

Ubuntu Networking :: Kernel Headers In Order To Install NIC Driver?

Jul 8, 2011

I am running Ubuntu 11.04 with a Dlink DGE-530T NIC. My browsing in Ubuntu on ALL browsers is horribly slow. It works perfectly fine on windows and other PCs on the LAN. So I know for sure my router and my internet line is fine.I figured it could be a problem with my NIC drivers and decided to install the drivers from the CD. (All this while it was running on the default drivers that ship with Ubuntu). I'm trying to install the sk98lin drivers and my understanding of the kernel so far is still very weak. When I try to run the install.sh script it gives me an error saying :

Code:
Create tmp dir (/tmp/Sk98IknhDHEiLKnkWUSoYMTLi) [ OK ]
Check user id (0) [ OK ]
Check kernel version (2.6.38-8-generic) [ OK ]
Check kernel symbol file (/proc/kallsyms) [ OK ]
Check kernel type (SMP) [ OK ]
Check number of CPUs (2)

[Code]...

But the installation script is still not able to find it. I tried searching a few threads on google but wasn't able to make too much sense of whats going on because of my lack of understanding of the linux kernel.

Fedora :: Yum Is Only Offering Kernel-headers For 2.6.35.11-83.fc14

where you only get offered the kernel-headers for 2.6.35.11-83 by yum but not the kernel or the kernel-devel? I tried yum clean all and both pointing to the baseurl and mirrorlist and it does the same thing for both. Oddly my other laptop with F14 in the wireless cafe showed all three packages were available.

Debian Configuration :: New Kernel And Headers Not Allowing NVidia Driver To Install

May 19, 2010

I've built a new kernel (2.6.34) on our workstation at work. It boots and runs beautifully, but there is one minor problem. I created the kernel as a Debian package along with the kernel headers. Upon installing both and attempting to build the nVidia driver for said kernel, the installer tells me that it cannot determine the version and quits. This happens even if I manually specify the path to the headers. What's going on here, did I miss something during my compilation of the new kernel?

Fedora :: How To Build Kernel Headers Version Arch RPM

I'm building a Kernel on System A to use on System B. I've followed the walkthrough on [URL], and I get the following rpms:

kernel-firmware-2.6.30.8-64.hymerfania_dbg.fc11.i686.rpm

kernel-PAE-devel-2.6.30.8-64.hymerfania_dbg.fc11.i686.rpm

What I don't get are any
kernel-headers-<version>.<arch>.rpm
Files. Don't I need them to rebuild modules and drivers on System B? Otherwise, how should I copy my new headers to System B? BTW, System B crashes when I try to build the Kernel on it, that's why I'm building debugger Kernels on System A.

Fedora :: Missing Kernel Headers In Folder /usr/include

Apr 4, 2011

The problem is that I need to use kernel headers like <linux/interrupt.h>. However, those files do not exist in folder /usr/include/linux. Thus, compilation fails. On the other hand, the files exist in folder /usr/src/kernels/2.6.30.10-105.2.4.fc11.i586/include/linux.

How can I get the missing headers into proper place in /usr/include/? I even tried coping, but extra files are then needed and so on.

I tried to use "make menuconfig", but I couldn't see a missing configuration I need.

I also tried to use " yum install kernel-devel". This tells me "Package kernel-devel 2.6.30.10-105.2.23.fc11.i586 already installed and latest version Nothing to do".
