Question kernel-headers-2.6.22.1-33.fc7


Can anybody point me to where I can download this? I rebuilt my main PC recently and after running yum update, was running kernel 2.6.22.1-33. I got my wireless working happily in this and everything was fine. Then I tried to update the kernel and it killed the wireless stone dead. I had wanted to use the Xen kernel but no joy with that either. For the sake of an easy life, I rolled back to 2.6.22.2-33 and am using this happily. However, I can't find the header files anywhere. I Googled for it and got lots of results (mostly mirrors showing this in the testing directory) but when I follow the links, this on isn't there. Grrrr.

It is no longer available, sorry. This is typical by the way when new kernels are released for Fedora the older updates are shortly afterwards (usually within a day or two). Did you perhaps keep the rpm package, check in the the /var/cache/yum directory structure.

What wireless interface are you having an issue with??

Best you first update your system to the latest kernel, which is kernel 2.6.22.1-41.

Then you yum install kernel-headers kernel-devel

It's a Belkin F5D7000 using bcm43xx drivers. It works very happpily under 2.6.22.1-33.fc7 but I've tried 3 other kernels and it wouldn't operate with them. I can run iwlist scan and it detects my network, and when I run iwconfig eth1 essid xxxxx, etc and set the correct options, it shows as associated with my AP but won't pick up an IP address. Setting the IP manually doesn't work either. It's a bit odd!

I checked /var/cache/yum and it has empty folders for each repo I've used

I can't get my wireless to work with 2.6.22.1-41.
