I had missing the following syscall_32.tbl file when I tried to build my module. (I have followed the direction from to build the custom kernel.)

I would really appreciate if anyone shows me how to fix this. I am using Fedora 19.

[user-name@localhost TEST]$ sudo make
make -C /lib/modules/3.11.9-200.user-name.fc19.x86_64/build M= modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernels/3.11.9-200.user-name.fc19.x86_64'
make[2]: *** No rule to make target `/usr/src/kernels/3.11.9-200.user-name.fc19.x86_64/arch/x86/syscalls/syscall_32.tbl', needed by `arch/x86/syscalls/../include/generated/uapi/asm/unistd_32.h'.  Stop.
make[1]: *** [archheaders] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernels/3.11.9-200.user-name.fc19.x86_64'
make: *** [all] Error 2
[user-name@localhost TEST]$

Thanks, PL

Careful with that sudo - a regular user can run make.

Try this:

$ yum provides */syscall_32.tbl
kcbench-data-3.9-0.1-14.fc20.noarch : Kernel sources from 3.9 to be used by kcbench
Repo        : fedora
Matched from:
Filename    : /usr/share/kcbench-data/linux-3.9/arch/x86/syscalls/syscall_32.tbl

I assume you read . There are some instructions at the bottom of that page for building modules, too.
