finding my dang kernel source


Recommended Posts

im probably just impatient, considering FC5 is fairly new, but does anyone know where i can get kernel-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5smp.src.rpm?? ive checked everywhere, yum doesnt even have it.

i tried yumdownloader --source kernel and i got nothin.

 

would installing a non-smp kernel source be bad?

i need kernel-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5smp.src.rpm but i have kernel-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5.src.rpm.

i need the source code to install a driver for my netgear WG311T wireless NIC.

 

i cant find a ntfs compatible version for 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 either

 

any help would be appreciated

yum install kmod-ntfs

 

im not completely sure about the first question, since you didnt mention the arch you are using.

you could always download source from kernel.org

i toyed around for a bit and i did a rpm -ivh command so i expected to find another entry in GRUB but it was the same entry. ntfs works now i just expected to find a new kernel installed. was it overwritten?

 

and about my first question earlier, i have kernel 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5smp. i need a source rpm for it but all ive found it kernel-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5.src.rpm when i need kernel-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5smp.src.rpm correct?

 

or can i just use the non-SMP version?

Actually, when we are talking about source rpms, there are no different architectures (Since its not compiled), so kernel-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5.src.rpm is the rpm you need :)

No .. you installed a kernel module, that is basically an extension to the existing kernel. No need for reboots to make them work either .. nice eh ?
