Hi all,

I have a cluster that has some new nodes that are running ubuntu 12.04 
LTS. However I have had to update the kernel to the latest ubuntu 13.04 
kernel because of an issue with the network cards.

So the current build environment is :

Ubuntu server x86_64 with kernel 3.8.0-27-generic.

I've downloaded the current lustre source with :

git clone git://git.whamcloud.com/fs/lustre-release.git

I change into the lustre-release directory and do sh automake.sh which 
seems to complete without errors, however when I try and configure the 
lustre build with :

./configure --without-server

The last few lines of output are :

checking whether to build kernel modules... yes (linux-gnu)
checking for Linux sources... /lib/modules/3.8.0-27-generic/build
checking for /lib/modules/3.8.0-27-generic/build... yes
checking for Linux objects dir... /lib/modules/3.8.0-27-generic/build
checking for /boot/kernel.h... no
checking for /var/adm/running-kernel.h... no
checking for /lib/modules/3.8.0-27-generic/build/.config... no
configure: error: Kernel config could not be found.  If you are building 
from a kernel-source rpm consult build/README.kernel-source

There is not a build/README.kernel-source nore is there a .config in

So I'm not sure how to proceed.
