    I have installed TrueImage and got an error when the installer tried to compile snapapi module
    Acronis True Image Server Setup failed to build │
    │ kernel modules. Consult /var/log/trueimage-setup.log │
    │ and /var/lib/dkms/snapapi26/0.7.1/build/make.log for │
    │ error messages.
    So I uninstalled and reinstalled and told it to skip the snapapi module
    Per the howto.install I am trying to manually build the snapapi module but get the following error
    Your kernel source for kernel 2.6.9-5.ELsmp cannot be found at
    /lib/modules/2.6.9-5.ELsmp/build or /lib/modules/2.6.9-5.ELsmp/source.
    You can use the --kernelsourcedir option to tell DKMS where it's located.

    here is the command I am using...
    dkms build -m snapapi26 -v 0.7.1 --config /boot/config-2.6.9-34.ELsmp --arch i686 --kernelsourcedir /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES

    /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES is the location that the kernel-2.6.9-5.src.rpm extracted to.
    2.6.5 is the kernel that loads and that is the only kernel rpm to be found on redhat's website.

    Any help in fixing this would be great.
