    how to solve “/lib/modules/3.5.0-17-generic/build: no such file or directory” error

    I installed ubuntu 12.10 64 bit
    on my derktop hp elite 7500
    but i have no ethernet connection.
    my ethernet card is: Atheros.

    i have downloaded drivers to install.
    i extracted files.
    then i try to install it it gives
    /lib/modules/3.5.0-17-generic/build: no such file or directory

    what is the problem.

    i googled found some sites
    where some people tell to install kernel headers.
    but if i have no network and no internet so how can
    i download and install it.

    and another interesting thing is that,
    when i try to install driver from live dvd
    it installed and i connected to the network.
    Then what is the problem when i try to do this from installed ubuntu..

    Hello and welcome

    Yes it looks like you will need the appropriate kernel header package - possibly also a whole whack of compile tools. TBH that's going to be a PITA without a working connection, so let's take a step back - if you go to the dash and search for 'Additional Drivers' does anything come up for your card?

    If not we can see if we can get the mods to move this to the Networking and Wireless subforum where the appropriate gurus can run with it
