vServer Lenny Minimal 64bit - Kernel version


Dear community,
I recently looked up the kernel version of my vserver and wondered as it showed 2.6.18-028stab070.3 which is kind of deprecated I think and should be 2.6.26-somewhat?
But however, does anyone know where to get kernel headers for this kernel? I just can't find them anywhere.
Any help is appreciated

2.6.18 is not "deprecated" at all; among other distributions it is the kernel for the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux, which will be supported until 2017!

Sorry but I am not a vserver expert and can't tell you where to get the headers.

Ah okay I just read somewhere that the Lenny minimal kernel got risen to 2.6.27, but okay so it's fine thanks.
Do the kernel headers really depend on that it is a vserver?

You should probably get more info from your hosting company; I really don't think you are running Debian Lenny...

Okay, could you give me please some "tests", so I can look if it is debian, for example special tools/build files.
And to come back to my other question, does anyone know where to get those kernel headers, respectively which to use for my kernel?

Post the output of the following:

Code:
cat /etc/debian_version
This will tell you what version of Debian you are running.

We'll need to know which kernel you are using,post the output of:

Code:
uname -a

Code:
cat /etc/debian_version
results in
Code:
5.0.6
and as mentioned in the first post the kernel is 2.6.18-028stab070.3 but to make sure here the whole output of uname -a:
Code:
Linux euve10145.vserver.de 2.6.18-028stab070.3 #1 SMP Wed Jul 21 18:33:27 MSD 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Well,you are running Lenny(5.0.6) but that's certainly not a Debian kernel you are using.
I would think that kernel comes from vserver.

What makes you think you need the kernel headers?.

The fact that I'm asked for them when trying to install VMWare
My vServer provider is server4you.de/server4you.com if anyone experienced similar issues.

As that looks like a service you pay for have you contacted their tech support?

Okay i got an answer, they can't state where the kernel is from, or where to look up information on it.
As the account to get a tech-ticket is occupied by a friend I have to wait until he's back to ask the technical support.
Anyway could anyone give me kernel-headers, which could work on the server in his opinion?
If you need more information like hardware etc. please just ask.

To specify my question and make it easier for you to help me, I would appreciate if anyone could tell me where to find the package
Code:
linux-headers-2.6.18-6-amd64
It seems to be no longer in the repositories as apt-cache search only delivers 2.6 and 2.6.26 kernel-headers. Maybe you know some site, where they keep working copies of older kernel-header versions.
