I'm a new to Linux and Ubuntu but I see a lot of reasons to move from Winblows.
I am trying to install the driver for a Plextor PX-TV402U USB2 PVR.
I went to a site that gives the following instructions in how to do it:
# Install required development packages (this is a big download)
sudo apt-get install linux-kernel-devel linux-headers-generic fxload libncurses5-dev
# Get the driver source
# Unpack the source
tar -xjvf wis-go7007-linux-0.9.8-patched.tar.bz2
t# Decend into source directory
# Compile the software
# Install the software
sudo make install
Because the first instruction included linux-headers-generic, I would get an error stating not to be found. I substituted linux-headers-generic by linux-headers-2.6.15-29-amd64-generic
The process for the first instruction found everything and installed all. I had already installled linux-headers-2.6.15-29-amd64-generic and it so notified.
I downloaded the driver and untar it in my home directory. Changed to the directory that was created and executed:
the output was:
***** Using kernel source in /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.15-29-amd64-generic *****
make modules -C /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.15-29-amd64-generic M=/home/oem/wis-go7007-linux-0.9.8-patched/kernel

Being new to all this, I do not know what went wrong.
Can you help me?
Peace to all
NOTE: To see how it was solved, look for a similar post in the Multimedia and Video section of the forums.
Note: I'm posting this here because I will use this driver in a virtualization project with VMware, VirtualBox and any other virtualization software.
Moderators: Please erase this post. Since there is no help available, I will post in another area of the forum.
