[solved] Error Trying to Compile Video For Linux.

I have a new TV card and I need to patch v4l to get it working. When I run the build script I get:

Preparing to compile for kernel version 3.7.9
File not found: /lib/modules/3.7.9-1-ARCH/build/.config at ./scripts/make_kconfig.pl line 33, <IN> line 4.

Usually this means that I you don't have linux-headers installed but:

scamper2 src/media_build ‹master*› » pacman -Ss linux-headers
core/linux-headers 3.7.9-2 [installed]

However, /lib/modules/3.7.9-1-ARCH/ doesn't have a build directory. Any suggestions on what I am doing wrong?

Thank you I need new glasses:) Wonder how the kernel and the headers got out of sync.

No problem.

Not rebooting after a new kernel or not having /boot mounted when updating are pretty common reasons...
