What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running kernel? [/usr/src/Linux/include]
Install C header Linux Kernel on Debian or Ubuntu
To install the Linux Kernel headers on Ubuntu or Debian Linux run this command to install the sources for your kernel specific version.
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
And this command to install the generic package, and keep your sources up to date. Every time you run
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
Your kernel and kernel headers will upgrade if an upgrade is available.
aptitude install linux-headers-2.6-686
Replace the “-686” for “-(xen|vserver|openvz)-686” or “-amd64” or “-686-bigmem”, if you need to. That depends on your architecture. Use
uname -a to check yours.
