View Full Version : [kubuntu] Error while building the kernel

September 30th, 2008, 12:54 PM
Hello all,

I was trying to install VMWare and while running the config.pl it requested for the kernel source which I did not have. I tried looking for the source of the kernel that I have(2.6.24-19-server) but in vain. So I thought I would upgrade the kernel and then proceed with the installation of VMWare.

So I downloaded source for When I try to build the kernel it gives me the following error:

Makefile:518: /usr/src/linux- No such file or directory
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `/usr/src/linux-'. Stop.
make: *** [conf.vars] Error 2

I have never done this before, so I was unsure what it means.
Please let me know how can we fix it.

Thanks :)
