Try first with

sudo apt install libevdi0-dev

thank you for replying, done but still the same error...

Check if you have installed evdi-dkms it seems to conflict with the module you're compiling.

Extensible Virtual Display Interface driver kernel module

The Extensible Virtual Display Interface (EVDI) is a Linux kernel
module that enables management of multiple screens, allowing user-space
programs to take control over what happens with the image. It is
essentially a virtual display you can add, remove and receive
screen updates for, in an application that uses the libevdi library.

Can you please provide a link to what you want to compile and why.
