Hi All,

Where can I find e1000 driver source code on i386 server having redhat 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 server.

I have checked the /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES it doesn't contain any files ?

Thanks.

Intel Drivers are Open Sourced.. so i would go to the project page.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/e1000

Thank you for your reply. Actually I want to modify e1000 driver source code and want to do some experiments. So, I want the location of the code in the server I am using(redhat 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 server). But, I am not able to find the kernel source code. Please do let me know the path where I need look for the source code?

Do you have the kernel-devel and kernel-headers RPM's installed? If you don't have the sources installed, that's most likely the issue in not finding the source.

rpm -qa | grep kernel

And tell us what the command outputs.
