Upgrading kernel to 2.6.32 in Pardus 2009.2


I have a Thinkpad which uses a Realtek Wifi controller.
I read that with the 2.6.32 kernel, the driver is now part of the kernel by default.

I have pardus 2009.2 installed and would like to upgrade the kernel from 2.6.31 to 2.6.32

But i cant find this kernel in the default repositories.
What can I do?

I don't know anything about pardus ... do they supply an option
to re-build their packages from source? If so, maybe you can
just use their source package for the old kernel, and (re-)build
the new one with their settings from a vanilla tar-ball?


Cheers,
Tink

If you build from source, the latest kernel is 2.6.36. That's the kernel you need.
