Re: Making module for WLAN stick on iBook
Lainaus Rogério Brito <firstname.lastname@example.org>:
The compilation script/makefile that came with your module is looking
for the kernel headers where /lib/modules/<version>/build is telling.
That's just it. I looked at a couple of other Linux machines (i386),
and they had the /lib/modules/<version>/build directory (link), as
well as /lib/modules/<version>/kernel. Unfortunately, my iBook (Debian
5.0.4) does not have these directories, and it does not even have the
correct /usr/src/<version> directory, which would be needed for
building any modules. The latter directory is normally a fully
populated tree of source code, not a single .bz2 file. Uncompressing
and untarring the .bz2 file that I have now in /usr/src won't help
either, because the version is not correct.
As noted earlier, I could not locate the kernel sources for
2.6.26-2-powerpc (*my* kernel); at least with apt-get I couldn't.
Anyway, are you really sure that you wouldn't like to use a newer
kernel? The 2.6.26. kernels are way, way too old.
First, I would like to find out what is wrong with my current setup. I
didn't even have 'make' to start with.
