Source for MDK 10 CE


this is a really stupid question, but here goes.
does anyone know what the package name should be for the source code on Mandrake 10 community edition. I need to to install a winmodem *shudder*
the modem is an intel537ep
i need the file autoconf.h to install it
would this be in the source package, or the autoconf package?
thanks for the help

Apparently this driver works, but support for it in 2.6.x kernels is still experimental.

Do you already have this file and are getting errors when installing it?

ok, i ran that command with no problems
i knew it was going too well
it perfectly installed the kernel-source for the 2.6.3 kernel
i cd'ed to the directory where the files are from the intel-537*.tar.gz
i did this:
Code:
[root@localhost intel]# make check
Module precompile check
   Current running kernel is: 2.4.25-2mdk
   /lib/modules...   autoconf.h does not exist
   please install kernel source
   make [check] ***: (Error 1)
root@localhost intel]#
i realize i installed the wrong kernel source... but wouldnt it be backwards compatible? also: if im runnin the 2.4.25 kernel, why did the CD i installed from install the 2.6.3 kernel when i issued the
Code:
urpmi kernel-source
command?
*about to pull hair out* all i want it my WinModem to work with Linux

Oops, I should have asked what kernel you were running.
Run
Code:
urpmi kernel-source-2.4.25-2mdk
It will have to uninstall the 2.6.x sources before installing the 2.4.x sources. That RPM should be on the first CD.

It looks like you'd have to created a customized gtk theme to get smaller icons
Quote:
6. When I install a nautilus theme, the toolbar icons don't change, what's happening?

This is not a bug and is by design. In GNOME 2, in order to make nautilus a more native GNOME app, nautilus themes are not allowed to change the toolbar icons. Toolbar icons can only be changed by gtk themes in a gktrc file.
Quoted from here.
