If the "installer" is trying to build a kernel module driver, then you will need these, at a minimum:
Code:
yum install gcc gcc-c++ kernel-headers kernel-devel
And, if the installer is compiling and installing a kernel module driver, then after every update to a new kernel you will have to build a new kmod driver for the avermedia tuner.

I don't know if the installer is supposedly providing the dvb_frontend.h file or if it's looking for it already installed on the system.
Find what Fedora package provides dvb_frontend.h
Code:
[paul@CarCrusher ~]$ yum provides */dvb_frontend.h
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
kcbench-data-2.6.38-0.1-8.fc15.noarch : Kernel sources from 2.6.38 to be used by kcbench
Repo        : fedora
Matched from:
Filename    : /usr/share/kcbench-data/linux-2.6.38/drivers/media/dvb/dvb-core/dvb_frontend.h
Install it
Code:
yum install kcbench-data
Though I'm not sure this will work as the dvb_frontend.h file is not in /usr/include/.....
Have you looked in /tmp/avm-install/installer/ and sub-directories to see if it is there somewhere and included with the installer package?

I tried to look there but the directory does not exist , probably it is erased when the installer ends

Re: Help me i want to install the linux kernel headers/sources to install the drivers

it's probably in the video4linux-devel package

You can get video4linux from the atrpms repository.

link to rpm file from atrpms:

64 bit Fedora 16:

http://dl.atrpms.net/all/video4linux...c16.x86_64.rpm
http://dl.atrpms.net/all/video4linux...c16.x86_64.rpm

32 bit Fedora 16:

http://dl.atrpms.net/all/video4linux....fc16.i686.rpm
http://dl.atrpms.net/all/video4linux....fc16.i686.rpm

Download the 2 packages for whatever arch you are running, and install with yum.
