Linux Source Directory
I am new to the LinuxQuestions.org website, and I've done some preliminary searching on this issue, both here and on Google, but I can't seem to figure this out. I know this is a real newbie question, so please forgive me upfront.
I am installing some new tarball compressed software. The configure script is requesting my "Linux source directory." The default here and everywhere I seem to look is /usr/src/linux. However, this is not the case with my SuSE 8.1 box. I do have /usr/src/packages with BUILD RPMS SOURCES SPECS SRPMS listed there. Within the /usr directory I have i486-suse-linux directory - would this be my source.
Apologiees upfront for my ignorance and thanks in advance for any help provided.
