    need a little help with sound card drivers.


    I've downloaded drivers for my PC. they were in *.tar.gz archive. I unpacked it and it created a folder with files there was a readme file with following instructions:

    Quick install

    =============
    In terminal,

    1) Goto source directory
    2) Execute make command as root
    make
    make install


    through Konsole I go to that new folder and write in command: "make", but I get error... what do I do wrong ?


    p.s. check screenshot !

    You are building a kernel module that will need to be linked back to the kernel source tree. You need to install the kernel source package.

    Code:
    # urpmi kernel-source-latest
    Remember that building a module manually this way will require you to rebuild the module every time the kernel is updated.

    This kinda error usually means the module was built against a different kernel source tree than the running kernel. Compare the output of
    Code:
    # uname -r
    to the kernel directory in the last few lines your screenshot. Make sure it matches, if not it's the wrong kernel source.
