Debian: How to get kernel header files
#1
Hello:

I want to compile a driver for an external long range wifi and it needs the kernel header files.
The synaptic package list for Debian installs for kernel version 4.9 and not 4.4 as required.

Thanks,

Crusty

Hello, hello,

I have a similar problem. I am trying to build a driver for a wacom tablet. This was very simple with other distros/ hardware. With the PBP I encounter the unavailability of the kernel header problem. Because I am quite inexperienced I do not know what to do to integrate the headers into the system after cloning the git repository. I already played a little bit with some scripts from the git repo but have not been successful. I would be grateful for any advice.


Cheers,

Muma
