> For both openssl and the kernel-headers, I have the same versions installed as the ones given by the two links below and I'm still getting the same errors. I read somewhere online that the second error (the one where the "build" folder does not exist) occurs because I have not built my kernel. Is that possible?
Hi, Sydney. I did a fresh install of Fedora 10 for x86-64 in a VM and was able to get a clean build. There were a few errors when I built from the "citrix" branch. If I build from the master branch, it all builds cleanly, though. You can get a snapshot of the master branch by downloading from this link:
When I did the installation of Fedora, I indicated that I wanted to do software development, which included all the necessary headers and libraries. I think you can do this after a standard installation by opening the "Add/Remove Software" program by following these menus in the UI:
Then, just make sure "Development Libraries" and "Development Tools" are selected from the "Package collections" in the upper-left corner.. I then just needed to run the following commands in the source directory:
./configure --with-l26=/lib/modules/`uname -r`/build --enable-ssl=yes
This all built cleanly and seems to work. If you have any question, please don't hesitate to follow-up!
