You appear to be running an X server; please exit X before
installing.

You need to exit from X. Run 'init 3' as root.

ok now its starts to install then I get this:

No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; this means
that the installer will need to compile a new kernel interface.


and:

ERROR: Unable to find the kernel source tree for the currently running
kernel. Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files
for your kernel; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you
have the 'kernel-source' rpm installed. If you know the correct
kernel source files are installed, you may specify the kernel source
path with the '--kernel-source-path' commandline option.


what do I do now?

Run "yum update" followed by "yum install kernel-devel"

Why is this necessary? Gentoo ebuild does not require this ;)
