Hello all,

I've been trying to get fedora 16 to recognice my line 6 PODxt which I have connected via USB. I've been vollowing the RPM installation instructions found at this site however I'm already running into a problem at using:

$ rpmbuild -tb line6usb-0.8.1.tar.bz2

This throws the error

error: Failed build dependencies: kernel-source is needed by line6usb-0.8.1-1.x86_64

I noticed this kernel-source was defined in the line6usb.spec file as a dependency I also read that rpmbuild previously did not check for dependencies so I thought it might be an error due to changes in rpmbuild. Trying to get around the error I tried

$ rpmbuild -tb --nodeps line6usb-0.8.1.tar.bz2

Now this also fails and I get a lot of text of which I'm not sure whether I should post it. Therefore I'll post the past part where I think things go south. The output is:

make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernels/3.2.7-1.fc16.x8664'

make: *** [default] Error 2

error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.dGgiGW (%build)

To me it seems as though there is something wrong in /audio.c but that would be strange because I have seen ppl use the podxt on linux. Does anyone have any idea what I could try to get things working?

Thanks in advance,

The "kernel-source" package is called "kernel-devel" in Fedora. Try running "yum install kernel-devel" and rebuild the package.
