    configure: error: modversions.h is missing - you should configure your kernel first!


    I was told to install kernel-headers...i tried a search under Yast and nothing came up....Help is VERY MUCH appreciated. Thanks.

    It looks like the kernel source is installed. The kernel is just not configured (see the above error message). Suse does still use RPM?

    Try this:

    rpm -qa | grep kernel

    This from another thread on compiling a network module, but it is for Red Hat. It will at least give you an idea of what you will need to do. This is just an example.

    cd /usr/src/linux-2.4.18-14
    make mrproper

    cp configs/kernel-2.4.18-athlon.config .config

    Open /usr/src/linux-2.4.18-14/Makefile in a text editor. Remove the word custom at the end of the "EXTRAVERSION" line

    VERSION = 2
    PATCHLEVEL = 4
    SUBLEVEL = 18
    EXTRAVERSION = -14custom

    save the changes & exit

    Then:
    make dep


    Loading the kernel config above is going to be Red Hat specific. As will probably be editing the Makefile. We are going to need some help from a Suse user. We need to know where Suse keeps the configs it uses to compile their kernels.

    Well, I found a cheat:

    $ mkdir -p /usr/src/linux/include/linux
    $ touch /usr/src/linux/include/linux/modversions.h

    but now i get this sillyness...

    linux:~/bin/pctel-0.9.6 # make
    cd . && \
    /bin/sh /root/bin/pctel-0.9.6/missing --run automake-1.6 --gnu Makefile /root/bin/pctel-0.9.6/missing: automake-1.6: command not found
    WARNING: `automake-1.6' is needed, and you do not seem to have it handy on your system. You might have modified some files without having the proper tools for further handling them. Check the `README' file, it often tells you about the needed prerequirements for installing this package. You may also peek at any GNU archive site, in case some other package would contain this missing `automake-1.6' program.

    Of course, I go and install autoconf2.54 and automake 1.6....and it still spits out the same stuff.....

    help.

    Not really the best way to do this.

    linux:~/bin/pctel-0.9.6 # make
    cd . && \
    /bin/sh /root/bin/pctel-0.9.6/missing --run automake-1.6 --gnu Makefile /root/bin/pctel-0.9.6/missing: automake-1.6: command not found

    How did you install them? Suse packages?

    You would have been better off installing the Suse packages.

    Unless you change where it is installed, software packaged as tar.gz, are by default installed in /usr/local. You may have them installed, but they are probably outside the search path. This is why you are still getting the error.

    Install the Suse packages from your cd's.
