    Error Installing USB-display for Ubuntu 9.10


    Hello everyone!
    I have been trying to install an USB display, Lilliput UM-70 but I could not manage it until now.
    I have been using Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic with kernel Linux version 2.6.32.7-x7.0, Ubuntu 4.4.1-4ubuntu8. I was using the following website as a reference:
    HTML Code:
    http://mulchman.org/blog/?p=90
    I have done all the steps until the following point:
    Code:
    cd udlfb
    make
    When I enter the command “make”, I get the following error:
    Code:
    make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r `/build SUBDIRS=/root/Desktop/udlfb/ modules
    make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.32.7-x7.0/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
    make: *** [all] Error 2
    During the previous points, it was a suprise for me that the following file took, in my case, less than a minute to be downloaded:
    Code:
    udlfb-0.2.3_and_xf86-video-displaylink-0.3.tar.gz
    The "build" file is located in the folder which it should be.
    Any ideas what the problem could be?
    Thanks!

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    In the build directory, under the modules subdirectory, should be additional subdirectories for the various kernels they support. My guess is that while they probably (hopefully) have a 2.6.32 directory, they don't have one for your sub-version 2.6.32.7-x7.0, so you will either need to run the configure script with the appropriate module options, or edit the Makefile to use your specific kernel (2.6.32).
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Actually, you are missing the kernel-devel package. I'm using RedHat, so for me, I install it by using:
    # yum install kernel-devel

    I forget how to install stuff with ubuntu - maybe dpkg or apt-get

    Hello Abarclay,
    I have tried your suggestion. However, the package couldn't be found. Apparently, for ubuntu the package is called "linux-kernel-devel" and the command is "apt-get install".
    Thanks anyway!
