So this is my first post here, and I'm a relative noob to linux, so please bear with me....

My computer is a Dell 8400, Pentium IV 3.4, 1.5 gig RAM, ATI X800XL, Soundblaster X-Fi Xtreme music

I've been trying to manually install the X-Fi drivers (openSUSE doesn't recognize it automatically), but I'm hitting a very early roadblock.

I extract the .tar.gz package, and go to the extraction directory, and type "make". Weather or not I am SU, I get the following error message:

/*********/

adam@ALIN:~/Installs/XFiDrv_Linux_Public_US_1.00> make
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.27.7-9-pae/build M=/home/adam/Installs/XFiDrv_Linux_Public_US_1.00
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.27.7-9-obj/i386/pae'
make[1]: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.27.7-9-obj/i386/pae'
make: *** [all] Error 2

/*********/


Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated!
