Hi,

I installed the kernel source on Linux 11.3 with Yast2/pattern/kernel development. The tutorial gaves the command:


$ make -C /usr/src/kernel-source-2.6.8 M=pwd modules


But that command does not work. Linux complaints: no such file.

I check the path and find they like:


/usr/src/linux/
/usr/src/linux-2.6.34.7-0.7/
/usr/src/linux-2.6.34.7-0.7-obj/

The first path:
/usr/src/linux/
displayed in italic style. Why it in italic?

What is the difference between the second and third directory?

I am new to Linux. Thanks.

Just want to try device driver compiling on OPENSUSE 11.3 with the web tutorial:

Writing device drivers in Linux: A brief tutorial


Unfortunately, the response of "make" command is:

no rule
