You need to install the headers to compile, but first make sure you have installed the next: open up a terminal and type:
aptitude show build-essential
Read and see if is installed, if not do: aptitude install build-essential
Also need to install the linux headers:
In terminal type:
and see the kernel header (example: 2.6.32-5-686)
In terminal search for the headers:
aptitude show linux-headers-2.6.32-5-686 (This is a linux header example)
Read and see if installed. If not then install them:
aptitude install linux-headers-2.6.32-5-686
Then try again to compile with make.
Make sure you have the makefile already created in the directory of driver. If instructed by vendor to just compile with make, then makefile is already created (via configure)...
Hope this helps...
