Question No sources in /usr/src after Installation


Hi all,

I've installed Slackware 9.0.

I would like to compile the Kernel with Nvidia support.

My Problem : After the installation no files or subdirectories in /usr/src/ exist. Therefore it seems to be impossible to compile a new kernel (I expected to find a /usr/src/linux with kernel sources).

What was my mistake and how can I resolve this ?

Kind regards,

Marcus

just install the package from the cd's... it's never normally installed by default as it's a pretty big lump of code.

I also have a question here. I have not compiled the kernel for device supporting purpose. How to do that? Put the source together with the kernel source and compile them all?

Thank you.

Exclamation I found it !

...in Slackware 9.0 the Kernel Sources are not included by default
(e.r in the Slackware 9.0.iso).

They have to be downloaded. At Slackware ftp-Servers you find /slackware9.0/slackware/ directory wicht contains a Directory /k. This contains the Kernel Sources wich have to be copied (or extracted) into /usr/src

I have to thank myself finding this out....
