Using kernel sources and headers on a shared host
When I use the uname -a command, it displays the following:
Linux ps91497 3.1.9-vs184.108.40.206 #1 SMP Thu Jan 26 02:37:05 UTC 2012 x86_64 GNU/Linux
/usr/src/linux-source-3.2 is where I downloaded the sources:
ps91497:/usr/src/linux-source-3.2# dpkg-query -l linux-source
|/ Err?=(none)/Reinst-required (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)
||/ Name Version Description
ii linux-source 3.2+44~bpo60+1 Linux kernel source (meta-package)
ps91497:/usr/src/linux-source-3.2# dpkg-query -s linux-source
Status: install ok installed
Maintainer: Debian Kernel Team
Source: linux-latest (44~bpo60+1)
Description: Linux kernel source (meta-package)
This package depends on packages containing the sources of the latest
So, to build this software package that I need - I need to convince the compiler that these are my kernel sources.
Any simple way to do this? I don't want to mess with environment variables, I just want to get the software built.
Any helpful hints would be much appreciated.
