Hi Shane!

Having got a few Raspberry Pi's going with my FREE STAR* project 
(www.freestar.us), I thought I'd give app_rpt a try.... I am also using 
the Raspbian "Wheezy" distro.

How did you get the 'kernel-dev' package installed?

I have tried a few different methods...

apt-get install make gcc linux-headers-`uname -r`

apt-get install raspberrypi-kernel-devel

apt-get install linux-kernel-devel (-dev as well)

And no joy!!!

Do tell....
