Trying to install dahdi from the link. I have downloaded package for dahdi. But on doing

cd /usr/src/dahdi-linux-complete*
make && make install && make config

My terminal shows

[root@localhost dahdi-linux-complete-2.10.0+2.10.0]# make
make -C linux all
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/dahdi-linux-complete-2.10.0+2.10.0/linux'
make -C drivers/dahdi/firmware firmware-loaders
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/dahdi-linux-complete-2.10.0+2.10.0/linux/drivers/dahdi/firmware'
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/dahdi-linux-complete-2.10.0+2.10.0/linux/drivers/dahdi/firmware'
You do not appear to have the sources for the 2.6.32-431.29.2.el6.x86_64 kernel installed.
make[1]: *** [modules] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/dahdi-linux-complete-2.10.0+2.10.0/linux'
make: *** [all] Error 2

output of uname -r

[root@localhost dahdi-linux-complete-2.10.0+2.10.0]# uname -r

I have the kernel source then why its showing the message You do not appear to have the sources for the 2.6.32-431.29.2.el6.x86_64 kernel installed.

I know this question is asked many times.I have tried those but dint resolve this problem. I have tryed updating my system but it says nothing to update.

Any Suggestions apart from reinstalling my OS???


Sure this described everywhere. If you not want read, try this:

yum update -y
yum install kernel-devel -y
  • tryed that,it says nothing to do already updated that package – deogratias Sep 23 '14 at 4:47
  • try reinstall kernel-devel – arheops Sep 23 '14 at 17:01
  • And make sure you reboot so that you're running the kernel that you installed the kernel-devel tools for (or run sudo yum install kernel-devel-$(uname -r) ) – sruffell Sep 23 '14 at 17:04

    solved it, removed all kernel packages by yum remove kernel* and then reinstalling by yum install kernel* – deogratias Sep 25 '14 at 4:57

I have reviewed the source and found that it looks a different location .

First run

yum install kernel-devel

And here is the trick

ln -s /usr/src/linux /usr/src/kernels/`uname -r`

For example in my server

[root@freepbx ~]# ls -l /usr/src

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 34 Jul 12 17:31 linux -> kernels/3.10.0-862.3.3.el7.x86_64/
