iMX6 linux kernel header installation

Hi All,

 

I decided to try the latest Linux version on my iMX6 SDB, so I downloaded the BSP and RFS, got u-boot, the kernel, and the file system running.  I ran
"do-release-upgrade", waited HOURS, did a little fix-up, and now have a stable Ubuntu 12.04 / Linaro system on my SD card.

 

I went to build my apps, which require kernel headers, and hit a wall.  The usual method to install kernel headers, "sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)" failed.  uname -r returns 3.0.35-2666-gbdde708.  I've already completed a "sudo apt-get update", so everything on my system is up-to-date.

 

How do I get and install the kernel headers for this release?  I'm trying to avoid the whole ltib / kernel build, so if there's a way to get and install just the kernel headers, please let me know.

 

Thanks in advance...
