This is *kind of* a 'make' error. It can't find some makefile
dealing with your kernel.

First of all, do `uname -r` and make sure the result is
linux- If it's not, you will need to specify the

I did <uname -r> before I wrote, to be sure I knew what kernel
version is here. The response is <>. I do not
see in the list that YaST has anything about a version like "-obj".

I have kernel-source and kernel-syms.

(hopefully when you run ./configure, otherwise you'll have to edit
the makefile itself).

Perhaps that will become clearer to me later. Right now, I do not
find a way to edit makefile, nor a way to avoid doing so.

And if you're not sure you have the kernel headers installed, check.

I didn't see "kernel-headers" in YaST. A more fundamental search
brings them up as "linux-kernel heades"

Te Error 2 is now as follows, containing several errors, including
an unfound command:

# make clean modules

/bin/sh: gcc: command not found

Is a powerful hint at the problem.

That's true. It doesn't help to choose among the many gcc compilers on the
DVD. Can I assume that gcc-c++ is the way to go? Or is gcc43-c++ the one
with the brass ring? Or gcc43? Or what?
