Hi i have a AMD64 comp that does not have an internet connection
I have installed Ubuntu 7.1 and have installed the build-essential packages for libc6-dev,gcc and g++ (which come along with the live CD). I tried to program a simple 'hello world' kernel module but several header files were missing in /usr/include . I downloaded these from the ubuntu website but the modules still dont run . Could someone help me patch this out

You are the only one to see the errors.
You have the kernel headers for the kernel you are using, we presume?

If you are not going to post errors, messages, etc. then search the forums for other posts on compiling a simple kernel module. It is a
somewhat frequent question, which could possibly be turned into a
HOWTO for kernel modules.
