PSP install errata kernel

Trying to install PSP 8.12 on my new 2.6.9 kernel:

[kat-prs16 linux]: ./install812.sh --nui

The HP ProLiant Linux Deployment Utility requires source code
for the 2.6.9-78.ELsmp kernel be available for building and installing
certain drivers included in this bundle.
The directory, /lib/modules/2.6.9-78.ELsmp/build, is either missing, or is empty.

Kernel source code may also be made available via NFS from a
remote system.

Do you wish to continue? [Y] n

Please install the RPM package for the 2.6.9-78. kernel source code,
and restart the HP ProLiant Linux Deployment Utility.

Problem is that I have installed source for this kernel.

[kat-prs16 tmp]: rpm -qa|grep -i 78
kernel-smp-2.6.9-78.EL
kernel-devel-2.6.9-78.EL

[kat-prs16 tmp]: rpm -ivh kernel-2.6.9-78.EL.src.rpm

As I see it kernel source is installed but I'm missing this "build" dir, whatever that might be?

Re: PSP install errata kernel

Shalom,

Take the rpm for the kernel development for the target kernel, install it and run the PSP install again.

Re: PSP install errata kernel

Yes, I just found it. I needed kernel-smp-devel-2.6.9-78.EL.x86_64.rpm
