Dahdi compile problem

I’m trying to install the latest freepbx and asterisk according to the instructions here:


I have Ubuntu 14.04.

When I try to make the dahdi installation, I get the following errors:

make -C linux all
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/dahdi-linux-complete-'
make -C drivers/dahdi/firmware firmware-loaders
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/dahdi-linux-complete-'
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/dahdi-linux-complete-'
You do not appear to have the sources for the 3.13.0-37-generic kernel installed.
make[1]: *** [modules] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/dahdi-linux-complete-'
make: *** [all] Error 2

I have installed linux-source and linux-headers-generic several times, and the result is:

linux-headers-generic is already the newest version. linux-source is already the newest version.

If I run

I get

It’s possible that I inadvertently deleted some source code directories when I was trying to clean my /usr/src/ directory in preparation for the installation, but shouldn’t installing the source and headers have fixed that?

Any ideas how to fix this problem?

you need the specific headers for your running kernel not just the generic ones apt-cache search 3.13.0

This identified the problem:

apt-cache search 3.13.0 linux-cloud-tools-common - Linux kernel version specific cloud tools for version 3.13.0 linux-doc - Linux kernel specific documentation for version 3.13.0 linux-headers-3.13.0-24 - Header files related to Linux kernel version 3.13.0 linux-source-3.13.0 - Linux kernel source for version 3.13.0 with Ubuntu patches ...

OK. Now, how do I install the specific source for my kernel

Thanks for the help!

Well, if its not some form of virtualization, then you somehow got your kernel out of sync with your repos, try

apt-get update and see if the correct headers show up. or find a debian package of linux-headers-3.13.0-37-generic and dpkg -i it.

I was able to fix it by reinstalling the kernel. This installed all of the sources and headers. Thanks for the help.
