newbie needs help

Recommended Posts

i'm on mandrake 9.2 build 2.4.22


when i run make, i get this:

[root@minint-9fhgzn usbvision-0.3.3-test5]# make; make install; modprobe usbvision

make: *** No rule to make target `i2c-algo-usb.o', needed by `all'. Stop.

cp usbvision.rc /etc/rc.d/init.d/usbvision

cp: cannot stat `usbvision.rc': No such file or directory

make: *** [install] Error 1


this error is a little different from some others other people get but i still need the kernel source installed


so look for how to fix this and i find that i need my kernel source to link to the build directory like this:


lrwxr-xr-x 1 root root 24 Mar 9 21:59 build -> /usr/src/benh_kernel_2.6


and it also said, "You do have the kernel source installed, right?"


we'll from the looks of it, i don't because i don't anything in the /usr/src/ directory that would have anything to do with my kernel

Unfortunately, all these ftp servers are in an un-usable state at the moment due to the changes involved with Community edition going Official.


In the meantime... if you haven't already... maybe you can tackle a kernel upgrade to



That file and its matching kernel-sources are available from our own server:
