i recentyl updated my kernel to 2.4.22 and added bootsplash support.. that works perfectly and the kernel works good.. except i have to rei stgall the nvidia driver.. but it gives me an errror that it cannot find kernel header file sources.. i made the package in /usr/abs/kernels/kernel did makepkg.. it made it find and it has a pkg/src directory.. i copied the src of the kernel to /usr/src/linux so theres /usr/src/linux/2.4.22 but it still will not work and cannot make the module and load it.. still gives methat i tcannot find kernel header files... any help would be great
well you should have the headers if you used makepkg to rebuild your kernel as part of the pacakge creates a /usr/src/linux directory that holds all necessary headers.
if you did not use makepkg to build you kernel then you obviously did not create a /usr/src/linux directory (you do this by untarring the kernel source in /usr/src than symlinking the untarred source directory (linux-2.4.22 in your case) to linux (ln -s linux-2.4.22 linux).
I am not your friend
okay well i did use makepkg and before by default in the /usr/src/linux directory was the folder include and had all this otehr stuff inside the include folder....i also jsut tried copying the stuff inside the folder
/usr/abs/kernels/kernel/pkg/src/linux-2.4.22 to /usr/src/linux but that didnt work either.. i will try symlinking it
id just like to mention i fixed the problem so thansk for the help!
What was the problem?
