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 have installed CentOS 5.4 & am trying to install VirtualBox on it. To install VirtualBox I run the command:
yum localinstall path/Virtualbox.rpm
It runs through the dependency check & says everything is fine. It installs the rpm & then says that compiling of the kernel module failed & that VirtualBox will not start until this is fixed, & that the most like cause is that the kernel sources are not installed.
I have installed the kernel-devel package & have the kernel source tree located at /usr/src/kernel/2.6....
I have been getting some compile errors here and there and have read that possibly I need to install the kernel-devel package.I am running 18.104.22.168 which I built from source.I have also built and installed the kernel-headers.I cannot find the kernel-devel for 22.214.171.124 anywhere, can I build it myself from the kernel source?
I'm working on a Fedora 13 server trying to intal some soft following the same steps I did with some other server with Fedora 12 ( not 13, like the new one ).First problem that I found was with 'yum install kernel-devel'
Response: Nothing to do ! Then I tryed 'yum -v info kernel devel' Response: Installed Packages Name : kernel-devel Arch : x86_64 code....
Second problem that is stopping me is 'yum install gcc' Some dpendency problem that can not be solved. Tryed --skeep-broken but nothing is installed.I don't have gcc on my sistem.
I have a program that needs kernel headers. The machine is running CentOS release 5.4 (Final). uname -r output: 2.6.18-164.9.1.el5 When I try to do a - yum install kernel-devel or kernel-headers I get: kernel-headers i386 2.6.18-194.3.1.el5 updates 1.0 M Why don't they match?
from what I understand kernel-devel does not bring in ALL the header files for install modules. so what i would like to know is how to install true headers instead of using kernel-devel. I found one tutorial, but it was way out of date.
I tried installing the VBOX additions. But after running the VBoxLinuxAdditions.run file, building of the kernel modules failed. It gave following message: The headers of the currently running kernel were not found. If the current compilation fails then probably this could be the reason. The missing package can be probably installed with yum install kernel-devel-126.96.36.199-5.fc15.i686.
But when I tried installing the above kernel headers and devel package, it says no such package were found.kernel is 188.8.131.52-5.fc15.i686 but the kernel headers are not available for this version. They are available for previous versions i.e 184.108.40.206-0.fc15.i686.should I downgrade my kernel version (if it's possible) or is there any way things can work out. I have enabled 3D accelaration and given the memory of 128 MB for display. The memory for Virtual Box is 1 GB and hard Disk is 8 GB. The host system is windows 7.
I have a problem to install the VMware Server (VMware-server-2.0.2-203138.x86_64.rpm) on "Fedora 13 Desktop Edition 64-bit".I traied all tips I found, but nothing was OK.Please look my linux configuration and the error messages:
The installation of VMware Server 2.0.2 for Linux completed successfully.Before running VMware Server for the first time, you need to configure it for your running kernel by invoking the following command: "/usr/bin/vmware-config.pl". code....
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".
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 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?
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.
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 am using ubuntu 9.10 and the vmware player 3 was working fine. But after the kernel headers updated to 2.6.31-22 the vmware player shows the pop up and says it cannot find the kernel headers. But actually, the linux-headers-2.6.31-22-generic are installed. I tried to re-install the vmware player but with no sucess. Is there any way to correct this error.
I just installed a fresh CentOS 5.2 32bit system. I used "The Perfect Server" server document from Howtoforge and went through those steps and then added Webmin administration console. I then tried to install VMware Workstation 6.5 onto the system. I downloaded the latest VMware bundle, ran it and everything went fine. I then try to run vmware and I get the following messages
C header files matching your running kernel were not found
Before youcan run VMware Workstation, several modules must be compiled and loaded into the running kernel

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-22.214.171.124 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/126.96.36.199/build/include) I get an error:
i'm using this guide videos - howto: debian linux kernel compilation, part 1 and the author says i need kernel 2.6.26 this version of kernel doesnt longer exist in kernel.org website and the only 2.6.26 i found is a patch here. should i use the patch? or download another version of kernel?
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.
Ive also tried downloading RPMs to a usb stick and it said it was the wrong ones for my machine.
How do i find out if my machine is x32 x64 x86?
Anyway im trying to install kernel headers and devel from the fedora installation disk but i dont know how to get to the cdrom thru terminal as i cant copy the RPMs to desktop by drag n drop or using software installer.
I dont have an internet connection to the pc so i cant use yum (which would make things so much easier) so can anyone tell me how how to install these packages thru terminal?
