I am extremely new to Linux, and recently installed SL 7.2 for my research this semester. I have been trying to get my wireless working to now avail. My network controller is a Realtek RTL8723be.
The things I have tried so far are installing the rtlwifi_new package from github using essentially the first steps of this process (http://askubuntu.com/questions/590414/wifi-problems-with-rtl8723be-in-ubuntu-14-04), however when I attempt to make i get this error.
make -C /lib/modules/3.10.0-327.el7.x86_64/build M=/home/wreeves/rtlwifi_new modules

make: *** /lib/modules/3.10.0-327.el7.x86_64/build: No such file or directory. Stop.

make: *** [all] Error 2

I then ran yum -y install kernel-devel, and installed the kernel, but make still wouldn't work. Does anyone have any advice?
I am using an HP laptop, if that is important.
