    Kernel Header not found..


    Trying to install linksys drivers for a second NIC for my debian vmware 'box'.

    I got an error "Kernel Header not found. Please install the linux header files development package or create a symbolic or crate a symbolic link from the /usr/src/KERNEL_VERSION directory to linux"

    Thoughts on how to install this?

    Thanks for the help!

    EDIT: Reading further it says to run:
    ln -s /usr/src/KERNEL_VERSION /usr/src/linux

    I did this, but still doesn't install, same error?

    Try installng the package with apt, or using synaptic. Be sure to match the kernel-headers package version with your current kernel version

    Hi,

    To install the kernel-headers that matches the kernel you're running enter the command:
    Code:
    apt-get install kernel-headers-`uname -r`
    Regards
