Usually you'll have to get the sources. Headers are part of them.

that is what i thought too,, but apparently under yast kernel source and linux kernel header is 2 entity. which result in my problem now that kernel source and running kernel are of the same version but header is not...i think i might have missed a crucial repo that should have the header info...

You are welcome. If you had filled in you user profile, I'd known that you use SuSE and could have told you definitely that the headers come in this distro with the kernel sources ... .
