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?

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.

I'm just installed OpenSuse 11.3 (64) on a 30gb SSD, hoping to get virtualbox 4.0 running to virtualize an instance of Windows 7.I went through some pain with my Nvidia video card and actually getting vb to install, but through lots of searching and tinkering got here.I created a vm in the vb control panel, but when I go to start it I get:

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?

OpenSUSE :: Recent Kernel Update Seems To Have Misplaced The Kernel Headers

A recent kernel update seems to have misplaced the Kernel Headers. VMWare needs these headers and cannot find them. Attempting to run VMWARE gets the message: Kernel headers for version 2.6.31.12-0.2-desktop were not found.

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.

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?

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.

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?

OpenSUSE Install :: Kernel Upgrade On 11.1 - Cannot Find Module After Reboot

Nov 10, 2010

I've upgraded kernel 2.6.27.48-0.2-default to 2.6.27.54-0.1.1 on openSUSE 11.1. Before I tried to upgrade to 2.6.27.48-0.3-default where I encountered the same issue. After reboot it can not find the modules for 2.6.27.48-0.2-default which puzzled me to no end. Now I have found that the /boot which is on separate partition of ext2 type is not mounted. The mount command does not recognize ext2 and xfs anymore.

Clearly the initrd does not have the right modules. Since this is standard zypper up process I would expect this to work without issues since it has worked until the 2.6.27.48-0.2-default kernel without issues. Has something changed with the last 2 kernel versions that requires some extra actions from me and if so what do I have to do.

Debian :: Automatic Removal Of Kernel Headers Package When Kernel Packages Are Removed

Dec 28, 2008

As a follow-on to something Telemachos said in another post:

Code:

I would have thought that removing a given kernel package would trigger the removal of the older kernel headers. Can someone confirm that is, or is not, the behavior? I ask this because it seemed to me that the older kernel header packages were indeed removed when I removed some older kernel packages.

For example, the linux kernels I have installed are:

Code:

Also, the linux-headers packages I have installed are:

So, when I get around to removing the linux-image-2.6.25-2-amd64 package like this:

Code:

I would expect apt-get to automatically also remove linux-headers-2.6.25-2-amd64 and linux-headers-2.6.25-2-common. Is that what will happen, or do I need to explicitly state all three packages on the apt-get remove command?
