Install kernel headers (current kernel only)

What's the command for installing kernel headers for the currently installed kernel?

Which version of Fedora are you running ?

The general command is

yum install kernel-devel kernel-headers

Fedora 12 has the necessary headers already installed AFAIK.

You're right. I didn't need headers for Fedora 12. It was kernel-devel I needed.

To answer my own question, to install headers for current running kernel:

yum install kernel-devel-$(uname -r)
