kernel source for 2.6.8-11-amd64-k8-smp

I am using Debian64 and I need to re-compile kernel 2.6.8-11-amd64-k8-smp with nVidia drivers for my Gefore 6800 GT and I also need to enable cpu userspace (for powernowd)l.

In the apt repositories, I can only find the kernel-headers-2.6.8-11-amd64-k8-smp headers, not the source. Can someone help me find the debian kernel source?

As I said in one of your earlier topics: 'linux-source-2.6.12' is the latest Debian Kernel Source. The Kernel source package for 2.6.11 is called 'kernel-source-2.6.11'.

There is no such thing as a kernel-source for AMD64. The kernel source is the kernel source an can be compiled for various architectures. You just need to use the right options in the kernel configuration menu. This would be choosing the K8 (AMD64) processor as your architecture in your case.
