You need the kernel source corresponding to your running kernel.

Code:
apt-get update
apt-get install kernel-source


Should get it. In blag30k the package is renamed kernel-sourcecode.

Anyway, you should be able to get the right driver for your kernel at http://atrpms.net. You can find out what your current kernel is by running:

Code:
rpm -q kernel
rpm -q --queryformat %{ARCH} ; echo
uname -a
