Installing kernel development environment
« on: 26 November 2009, 02:16:11 pm »

Hi

Kind of as a plan B to my post about trying to set up a cross-compilation toolchain on my desktop PC, I thought I'd try setting up the capability to compile drivers right on the 'plug itself. 

Code: [Select]
apt-get install kernel-package linux-headers build-essential ctags libv4l
No joy - there are lots of choices for linux-headers:

Code: [Select]
Package linux-headers is a virtual package provided by:

  linux-headers-2.6.28-11 2.6.28-11.42
You should explicitly select one to install.

None of these really seems to make sense since uname-rvp gives:

Code: [Select]
2.6.30.2 #11 PREEMPT Wed Jul 22 19:53:31 MDT 2009 unknown
Can you see 2.6.30 in the list above?  All 2.6.28.

???

Yours hopefully
