I am posting this here since I am trying to install a lan card, yet this may be a how to compile drivers question.

I am trying to install a Sabrent PCI Wireless network card on Scientific Linux 6.4. I copied the drivers from the cd to /usr/local/PCI-G802/Driver/Linux/module. From this dir I ran:

The following output was displayed in the console:

------ Ralink RTG1 Station Configuration -----

Linux Kernel source directory [/usr/src/linux-2.6.32-358.el6.686]:

Linux source tree '/usr/src/linux-2.6.32-358.el6.686' is incomplete or missing!

Configuration failed!

End of output.

When I look at the Linux source tree dir nothing is there. Have I not correctly install Scientific Linux to correctly? What do I need to do to get these drivers to compile?

You will need to install the kernel-devel package which matches the current running kernel.

That package can be found on the installation medium.
