    install script can not find kernel-headers


    hi, everybody!

    i am trying to compile a driver for an lt winmodem on an ibm thinkpad i series 1400. attempts failed because the kernel-headers could not be found.

    i am using slackware v10.1 and i already re-installed kernel-headers-2.4.29.

    questions:

    1) how do i find the (default) installation directory for kernel-headers?
    2) how do i create the link(s) that should enable the system or install script to find the kernel-headers?

    thanks in advance.

    1) /usr/include/asm and /usr/include/linux
    2) I think you should install the kernel sources and compile a kernel, but I'm not sure about it. I don't (want to) know the script your driver is using.

    But most of the times complaints about kernelheaders is caused by a missing usable kernel source.
