    Thats a nice trick Elija I think the OP needs solution with Debian ,so apt-get should work for him

    The Red Hat question was more curiosity as that doesn't strike me as a Debian specific trick. I suppose it comes down to how the packages are named.

    Yes,Its quite annoying to figure-out equalivent packages between rpm-based distro and deb-based distro.

    I really appreciate the help here. Unfortunately I royally messed something up. I tried to remove the common headers and re-run the make on the hello module. reinstalled them and installed all using linux-headers*

    now when I try to use the make command on the module it says my kernel configuration is invalid. I think i'm just going to blow up this VM and make a new one.
