Kernel problems?


I'm trying to install OpenSound and I get this error.

/lib/modules/2.6.21-1.3194.fc7/source: No such file or directory

apparently
/usr/src/kernels/2.6.21-1.3194.fc7-x86_64

does not exist.

but
/lib/modules/2.6.21-1.3194.fc7
does exist.

What's going on?

some source code requires the source of the kernel in order to build, packages like alsa, iptables, and a few others, you will have to download & install the kernel source in order to build OpenSound...

Why doesn't Fedora install the devl-tools (or whatever they call the package) by default ???.
I ran into this (and the stupid place they put the source) with Redhat 9. I got so pissd off trying to compile a winmodem driver, I tossed the whole distro and went to gentoo.
With that and a chronic RPM dependancy cock-up I swore off Redhat based distros forever.
