Re: Making module for WLAN stick on iBook

Quoting Rogério Brito <rbrito@ime.usp.br>:

If you want to compile your own kernels, having only build-essential is
enough (it will pull in various other packages needed for compilation of

But... When I say 'apt-get install build-essential', the answer is that 'build-essential' is already installed and the latest version. However, here are the contents of /usr/src/linux:
ibook:/usr/src# ls -al
total 47528
drwxrwsr-x  2 root src      4096 2010-04-12 20:05 .
drwxr-xr-x 12 root root     4096 2010-04-02 19:54 ..
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 48606909 2010-03-09 23:10 linux-source-2.6.26.tar.bz2

So, there is only the .bz2 package. That is not enough, is it? Also, the directory that the earlier 'make' complained about, /lib/modules/2.6.26-2-powerpc/build, is still missing.

I suspect there is some very basic capability that I lack to build modules. I mean, it's not just the A-Link WLAN module that cannot be built - I don't think I can build *any* module with the current setup.
