Hi. thanks for your reply. the version I have is 188.8.131.52-34-default. What I found strange is that there is no linux directory under /usr/src/ however, there is a directory called linux-184.108.40.206-34-obj. Could this be the kernel installation folder? I went and downloaded the kernel with the same serial number form kernel.org and found this great article on the web:
Again, the folders did not correlate with what I had but i assumed if I just put the package in the /src directory and un-tar it as the document describes. So I un-tar'ed it there and looked through the new folder and discovered the missing folder I was looking for. I.E. /drivers/usb/serial. Now I just have to figure out how to modify, re-compile and install. The difficult part in learning linux is that docs for the new version of opensuse 10.2 is scarce and I also do not know much about linux. I'm trying to get skilled on linux.
The installation I'm trying to is detailed at:
If you have further ideas, or things that i should lookout for please reply here. Any help is greatly appreciated. I will post here as I go along. Maybe it will help someone else too.
