    Hi All!

    I would like to install a program on Ubuntu 12.10.
    I have to patch the kernel and I follow the guide at the buttom of the page.
    I made all of steps but something wrong.
    I get this output when I run ./configure command:

    netconf.h is not at the right place. I found it at:

    Wat could be the problem?

    Where can I type the commands os the 4th step? In linux-stable/ directory?


    1. Tools you'll need
    sudo apt-get install fakeroot build-essential crash kexec-tools makedumpfile kernel-wedge kernel-package
    sudo apt-get build-dep linux
    sudo apt-get install git-core libncurses5 libncurses5-dev libelf-dev asciidoc binutils-dev

    2. Getting the kernel source
    git clone git://
    git tag -l
    git checkout

    3. Patching
    patch -p1 -d linux-stable -i /patches/kernel//*

    4. Configuration
    cp /boot/config-`uname -r` .config
    yes '' | make oldconfig
    make menuconfig
    Networking support / Networking options
    Transformation sub policy support ==> y/m
    Networking support / Networking options / The IPv6 protocol
    IPv6: Mobility ==> y/m
    IPv6: XFRM raw IPv6 tunnel ==> y/m

    5. Compiling kernel
    cd linux-stable
    make clean
    make -j `getconf _NPROCESSORS_ONLN` deb-pkg LOCALVERSION=-mip6dng

    6. Installing the kernel
    sudo dpkg -i linux-image--*_i386.deb
    sudo dpkg -i linux-headers--*_i386.deb

    If the kernel source is in /usr/src/linux-3.8.2-mip6dng then what are you trying to build in /home/mipv6/wakoond* ?

    The guide requests you install fakeroot, but then makes no use of it as far as I can tell?

    A link to the guide you are following and an explanation of what you are trying to do would also be helpful?

    It is the public page of the progrram what I would like to install.:

    I get 3 readme files with the source files. 2 for the patches and 1 for the installation.
    I have to patch the kernel and iproute2 before the installation.

    I attached all 3 readme files.

    Can you help me with that?
