Kernal source files are not found in FC-12


Hi,

I am Vamsi from Alcatel-Lucent. We have a software to configure the wireless broadband devices to the Linux machine. Till now, it was running on FC-5. When we need to add any new device, we used to add it in airprime.c, sw.h and usb-serial.c under /usr/src/linux/drivers/usb/serial directoy.

Now we are trying to upgrade the system to FC-12. But I am not able to find any kernal files under /usr/src/kernels/2.6.31.5-127.fc12.i686.PAE/drivers/usb/serial directory. I saw in some websites that the kernal files can be found at: /root/rpmbuild/SOURCES/linux-2.6.31/drivers/usb/serial. But in my system, there is no rpmbuild directory.

Please help me how can I get the source files.

Thanks a lot in advance.

-Vamsi Krishna

Why would you upgrade to Fedora 12, when the latest is Fedora 14?? And since you're doing an upgrade, I'm assuming you downloaded the ISO, and have it accessible, either via network or on DVD. Look on the installation media, and the kernel source is on it. Install it via RPM or YUM.

Fedora 12 was obsoleted 02-Dec-2010, is unsupported, and will quite soon be found
in the old archive only http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu.../fedora/linux/

"/usr/src/kernels/2.6.31.5-127.fc12.i686.PAE/" :
This is from the package 'kernel-devel' : Almost no files are included.
Meant for building 3rd party drivers, that come with its own files.


The complete source package(s) : Available as SRC.RPM only :
"Release" version
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...7.fc12.src.rpm
> kernel-2.6.31.5-127.fc12.src.rpm

Latest is ( from the updates 01-Dec-2010 )
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...5.fc12.src.rpm
> kernel-2.6.32.26-175.fc12.src.rpm

Suggest :
Install the long term supported free version of Fedora 12 :
Soon to be released as CentOS 6.0. ( Copy of RHEL 6.)

TB0ne and knudfl,

Thanks a lot for your help.
First I will try to install the FC-12 package suggested by knudfl. If that also did not work out, I will go for FC-12.
I will let you know the result ASAP.

Thank you,
Vamsi Krishna

You can also get kernel files from www.kernel.org for the same kernel. If FC12 has modified the source files, then you would need to use theirs.
