Hi there,

What do you mean by
Quote:
linux source code
If you are looking for the source code of different software, you should be able to get it at the same place as the software itself.

Cheers

Hi,

Is the kernel source enough?

If so 'just' download the appropriate kernel (http://www.kernel.org/) and unpack it, all the source code needed should be there.

I dont think that you can get all source from a specific site but say like
if you want linux kernel http://www.kernel.org/
iptables http://www.netfilter.org/downloads.html
likewise search in google which sources that you need
OR
search in http://sourceforge.net
