Thread: Latest Kernel-source-3.11.10.25.1 /include directory missing

  1. #1

    Default Latest Kernel-source-3.11.10.25.1 /include directory missing

    OS 13.1 Xfce Desktop

    Can't install NVIDIA driver after update to 3.11.10.25.1 Kernel.

    Reason:
    The /include directory is missing from the kernel-source-3.11.10.25.1

    Same will affect all applications like Oracle VirtualBox, VMware, etc. wich need the kernel souces to compile drivers, etc. as part of their installation processes.

    My solution was to go back to the 3.11.10.21.1 kernel and kernel sources.

    My only remaining 13.1 system is 32-bit.

    Checking, I see that there is an "include" directory. Specifically, I am seeing "/usr/src/linux-3.11.10-25/include". Also, I have Nvidia drivers installed on that system without a problem.

    I suggest you check whether you are low on free disk space. Maybe that part of the install failed silently.

    No, you need the kernel-devel package for this purpose.

    Yes. But, as far as I know, that should have been a required dependency of the kernel source package. So it should have been automatically installed. This is why I wondered about an out-of-space problem on the file system.

    It should have been, hence the "Hmm" I heard inside my head but I discounted that as being caused by eating too much ham

    Code:
    krakatoa:~ # zypper in kernel-source
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    Resolving package dependencies...
    
    
    The following 3 NEW packages are going to be installed:
      kernel-desktop-devel kernel-devel kernel-source 
    
    
    3 new packages to install.
    Overall download size: 83.2 MiB. After the operation, additional 482.5 MiB will be used.

    Fair point, kernel-source does require kernel-devel, I didn't realise
    that.
