Help on compiling driver

Hi all,good day. I'm very new to linux. My bad....
I installed fedora 15 on my desktop with kernel PAE

I'm compiling a driver provider by a 3rd party. I then setup the environment.

Code:
yum groupinstall "Development Tools"
yum install kernel-devel
yum install kernel-headers
yum install kernel-PAE-devel
Code:
uname -r
2.6.43.5-2.fc15.i1686.PAE
Code:
rpm -qa | grep kernel
kernel-devel-2.6.43.5-2.fc15.i1686
kernel-PAE-devel-2.6.43.5-2.fc15.i1686
kernel-headers-2.6.43.5-2.fc15.i1686
kernel-PAE-2.6.43.5-2.fc15.i1686.PAE

Everything went fine.

so i tried to compile the using make, but an error occur in the compilation.
It did compile CentOS which i used earlier. Don't think the problem is in the code.

I really don't know whats wrong. Am i missing packages?
Are there headers file for kernel-PAE? I couldn't find any solution the net.


THANKS in advanced!!

Your code is too old to compile with the F15 3.3.5 kernel

kernel changes have obsoleted your driver code

The internal version for that kernel is 3.3.5

You need to fix your driver code

Re: Help on compiling driver

Sadly the code is not written by me. It's provided by a 3rd party.
