    Path to linux tree -


    Hello evreyone,

    I am trying to compile a simple kernel module and its documentation says that :

    /*
    * demo-module.c
    *
    * Compile with
    * gcc -I/path-to-linux-tree/include -D__KERNEL__ -DMODULE -O2 \
    * -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -c -o demo-module.o demo-module.c
    */

    How can I determine this "path-to-linux-tree" ??

    Thanks in advance.

    It's usually /usr/src/linux-[kernel version], but 99% of people put a symbolic link from /usr/src/linux to the folder for their main kernel.
