    Install Linux Headers (2.6.32-24)?

    How do you install headers? Is it different for every version? Synaptic seems to have them all except for my kernel! When I do a
    Code:
    ls /boot
    it returns with
    Code:
    abi-2.6.32-24-generic	      memtest86+.bin
    config-2.6.32-24-generic      System.map-2.6.32-24-generic
    grub			      vmcoreinfo-2.6.32-24-generic
    initrd.img-2.6.32-24-generic  vmlinuz-2.6.32-24-generic
    I tried to install them with
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
    Here is what I've tried and here's the results:
    Code:
    grant@TheHaxLab:~$ sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
    Reading package lists... Done

    The following extra packages will be installed:

    The following NEW packages will be installed:
      linux-headers-2.6.32-21 linux-headers-2.6.32-21-generic
      linux-headers-generic

    What is going on? I have the kernel for 2.6.32-24, but it can't find the headers for it? Why is it choosing and trying to install the headers for 2.6.32-21?

    Oh, and do I need linux-headers-generic AND linux-headers-2.6.32-24 AND linux-headers-2.6.32-24-generic? Or if I do one, will it automatically install them all?

    linux-headers-2.6.32-24 Header files related to Linux kernel version 2.6.32
    linux-headers-2.6.32-24-386 Linux kernel headers for version 2.6.32 on i386
    linux-headers-2.6.32-24-generic Linux kernel headers for version 2.6.32 on x86/x86_64
    linux-headers-2.6.32-24-generic-pae Linux kernel headers for version 2.6.32 on x86
    linux-headers-2.6.32-24-preempt Linux kernel headers for version 2.6.32 on x86_64
    linux-headers-2.6.32-24-server Linux kernel headers for version 2.6.32 on x86_64

    http://packages.ubuntu.com/lucid/linux-headers

    and yes the linux-headers-generic is a metapackage. This package will always depend on the latest generic kernel headers available.

    See what headers you have in /usr/src, they should be there automatically from kernel updates. I removed earlier Linux version(s) with Synaptic and g13-userspace is something I compiled for a gamepad:

    Code:
    ls -l /usr/src
    total 24
    drwxr-xr-x  2 efflandt efflandt 4096 2010-09-22 03:39 g13-userspace
    drwxr-xr-x 24 root     root     4096 2010-07-08 23:51 linux-headers-2.6.32-23
    drwxr-xr-x  7 root     root     4096 2010-07-08 23:51 linux-headers-2.6.32-23-generic
    drwxr-xr-x 24 root     root     4096 2010-09-18 12:08 linux-headers-2.6.32-24
    drwxr-xr-x  7 root     root     4096 2010-09-18 12:09 linux-headers-2.6.32-24-generic
    drwxr-xr-x  3 root     root     4096 2010-07-12 22:47 nvidia-current-195.36.24

    Here's what it gave me.
    Code:
    grant@TheHaxLab:~$ ls -l /usr/src
    total 4
    drwxr-xr-x 12 root root 4096 2010-08-11 01:49 virtualbox-ose-3.1.6
    grant@TheHaxLab:~$
    Looks like there's nothing in there from any headers? Except for what's in my virtualbox.
