Hi All,


I'm compiling vif command to powerpc executable for my project. I'm Compiling source code using powerpc ubuntu to built the vif utility with powerpc executable.


When I compile, It gives the below error,



make -C /lib/modules/3.12.37-rt51-QorIQ-SDK-V1.8+gf488de6/build M=/root/project modules

make: *** /lib/modules/3.12.37-rt51-QorIQ-SDK-V1.8+gf488de6/build: No such file or directory.  Stop.


When I search in forum like, how to build these directories, got some suggestions to install some packages like linux-headers-$(uname-r)


Then I try to install the package, but it is not avail


sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)

Reading package lists... Done

Reading state information... Done

E: Unable to locate package linux-headers-3.12.37-rt51-QorIQ-SDK-V1.8+gf488de6

E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'linux-headers-3.12.37-rt51-QorIQ-SDK-V1.8+gf488de6'



How can I resolve this problem and make those directories available ??
