Re: Where to put the source of kernel ??

The actual source, Debian or not, can go nearly anywhere. What is

Generically, you need a link in the lib/modules hierarchy to point to
the dev headers.
I said that wrong. I misspoke. The "dev" headers are what the name
implies. Used for compiling application software.
The kernel headers have *about* the same ABI, but they are what you need
to compile a kernel module with.
So, yes, Virginia, there is a difference.
I said the compile a module against the dev headers, but that is *wrong*.
As Sven said:
# ln -sf /path/to/linux-x.y.z /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build
Of course the kernel sources must match the running kernel.
