Using the script from the Intel web site, I get an error: Error: cannot find header matching kernel version 2.4.18-bf2.4 The error generated a dri.log file, here are the contents.

    I'm trying to install the Intel 845G display adapter on my computer. Using
    the script from
    the Intel web site, I get an error:
    Error: cannot find header matching kernel version 2.4.18-bf2.4

    The error generated a dri.log file, here are the contents. Anyone have any
    ideas?
    Or am I just missing something simple?

    First, make sure that you have installed the kernel header files matching
    your kernel image (i.e. install kernel-headers-2.4.8-bf2.4, you can find
    the package here: [url]http://packages.debian.org/stable/devel/[/url]).

    If it still won't work, make a symlink
    /usr/src/linux > /usr/src/kernel-headers-2.4.18bf2.4.

    best regards
