if you have setup your repository list ( /etc/apt/source.list ) , you can try this :
# apt-cache search linux-kernel-headers
then try to install with :
# apt-get install ....

Do you need to upgrade for a specific reason? Some of the posts here that refer to kernel headers suggest that you should keep the version that your glibc was compiled with (for example, http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...88#post2056088).

yes i'm trying to install the driver for marvel Yukon 88E8036
but when running the script it fails when searching for the linux-kernel-header with the same version as my current kernel that is 2.6.12-9 and i can't find it anywhere
I still don't have net in ubuntu so can't do apt-get ;(

I take it that 2.6.12-9 isn't the version from your install CD and you can't install the headers from the CD?

here, you can use http://snapshot.debian.net/ .
this site keeps old packages.

if you search for "linux-2.6" you will get this package to add to your /etc/apt/sources.list:
Code:
deb http://snapshot.debian.net/archive pool linux-2.6
deb-src http://snapshot.debian.net/archive pool linux-2.6
then
Code:
apt-get update
and you will find you have in your list!

oh goodness ignore this and that horid link == some of those people and above posters as well possibly as yourself have confused currently running kernel source and user space kernel/glibc headers.
two way different things.
if you are compiling a kernel module all you need is source code for your kernel installed in
the headers are in
/lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/include

if they are not there install kernel source code

linux kernel headers

fond it !!!
in h t t p ://debian.yorku.ca/ubuntu/pool/main/l/linux-source-2.6.12/

the poblem was the name of the package

the packged that contains
Code:
Linux kernel headers 2.6.12
has a short name like
Code:
linux-headers-2.6.12-9_2.6.12-9.23_i386.deb
no wonder it was hard to find...

thanks
