Install Intel I210 Driver in Debian Linux

While I am installing the Intel Ethernet I210 adaptor, I find it can not be run and it shows the following message:

Makefile:71: *** Kernel header files not in any of the expected locations.

Makefile:72: *** Install the appropriate kernel development package, e.g.

Makefile:73: *** kernel-devel, for building kernel modules and try again.  Stop.


It means that you don’t install the kernel-headers.

Just type the following command with root account:

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


Then follow the installation guide shown in the driver directory.

# make install

# modprobe <module name>
