    271271An external module must always include a wrapper makefile that supports building the module using 'make' with no arguments. See [https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/kbuild/modules.txt modules.txt] for details.

    273 To build external modules you must have a prebuilt kernel available that contains the configuration and header files used in the build. Also the kernel must have been built with modules enabled.

    275  * Newport prebuilt kernel: [http://dev.gateworks.com/newport/kernel/]
    276  * Ventana prebuilt kernel: [http://dev.gateworks.com/ventana/images/]
     273To build external modules you must have the kernel source.  Gateworks does not recommend doing this on the target.

    277275 * Note, for example, on a running Gateworks Newport SBC using Ubuntu, do not use the command **"apt-get install linux-headers-generic"**, this will install the Ubuntu kernel headers which do not match the Gateworks kernel.
