View Full Version : kernel headers directory

28th February 2006, 05:09 PM
Hi, thanks for reading.

I am trying to install a cisco vpn client and it asks me for the location of my kernel headers

In order to build the VPN kernel module, you must have the
kernel headers for the version of the kernel you are running.

For RedHat 6.x users these files are installed in /usr/src/linux by default
For RedHat 7.x users these files are installed in /usr/src/linux-2.4 by default
For Suse 7.3 users these files are installed in /usr/src/linux-2.4.10.SuSE by default

Directory containing linux kernel source code

I am using fedora core 4... thanks!

do you have the kernel headers installed?
You should be able to use yum to install them. I don't know the exact command. It may be something like: yum install kernel-devel

lol, maybe not.. i'll look into that, thanks :-)

yum install kernel-devel I think will do the trick

thanks, that worked, kinda... now i'm getting different, unrelated errors

what are the errors you are getting?

I think it has to do with the version of the client I am using

the result I get is very similar to this
