Guida passo per passo

  1. Run the following command to find out the kernel version and the required GCC version:

    cat /proc/version

    ES: Linux version 4.4.0-104-generic (buildd@lgw01-amd64-022) (gcc version 5.4.0 20160609 (Ubuntu 5.4.0-6ubuntu1~16.04.5)

  2. Run the following command to check whether the Make tool and the GCC compiler are installed:
    make -v
    gcc -v

    For gcc, ensure that the version returned by the command is the same as in the gcc version in step 1. For make, just ensure that the command runs.

  3. Check whether the appropriate version of the packages for building kernel modules is installed:
      • In Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, and Fedora, run the following command:
    yum list installed | grep kernel-devel

      • In Ubuntu, run the following commands:
    dpkg --get-selections | grep linux-headers
    dpkg --get-selections | grep linux-image

  4. In either case, ensure that the package versions are the same as in Linux version in step 1.

  5. Run the following command to check whether the Perl interpreter is installed:

    perl --version

    If you see the information about the Perl version, the interpreter is installed.
