Hi steve
i have tried to search build-essential and linux-header -ARCHin KUBUNTU
packet manager (as how i install them in Ubuntu) but i m unable to find
Actually while installing modem  when i type "make clean" command it says
command cant find
i m wondering whether it is due to absence of build essential &linux header
or something else.
remember the same command works in UBUNTU
