Kernel source update


I have Suse 9.1 (the sigle disk instilation personal version.)

I need to install a driver so i can get on the internet, however it required the kernel source.

How do i add the source to the existing kernel.?

Is ther a setup or do i simplily exreact and place.?

Where can i get this source as it is not on the cd?

Have you checked the /usr/src/< Kernel Version Here > directory? This is where the kernel source files should be. I do also believe that Suse comes with the source, most distros do.

The source must be the of the same relase your kernel is, or modules will not compile right. That one you found will not work... Let me look some more...

What your looking for is this:
ftp://mirror.switch.ch/mirror/suse/s....4-52.i586.rpm

To use this download it, and than cd into the dir you downloaded it to, than run

Code:
 rpm -i kernel-default-2.6.4-52.i586.rpm
You than should have the source in /usr/src/
