why can't i find my kernel?


hi guys,

i wanted to install a driver for my wlan card.
the installation progress doesn't find version.h in /lib/modules/2.6.13-15.7-smp/build .

if [ "$LINUX_SRC" = "" ] ; then
LINUX_SRC=/lib/modules/$CUR_RELEASE/build
fi

ask_str "Linux source directory" LINUX_SRC

if [ ! -f $LINUX_SRC/include/linux/version.h ] ; then
$ECHO "Linux source tree $LINUX_SRC is incomplete or missing!"
if [ -d $LINUX_SRC/include/linux ] ; then
$ECHO " The kernel header files are present, but not " \
"the full source code."
fi
$ECHO " See the HOWTO for a list of FTP sites for current" \
"kernel sources."
fail

but in this directory no /include/linux/version.h can be found.

my question is: where is this thing? i can't find my kernel header!

I'm using Suse 10.1 i think!

Hi and welcome to LQ You need your kernel-sources. Which distro are you using so that we can better tell you where to find it?

In that case, open YAST and go to Software and then install the kernel-sources package for your kernel version.

Can't find kernel source, can't install in YaST

I am running SUSE 9.1, and I don't have the kernel source. If I do a search in YaST for 'kernel-source', no results are found in any of my repositories or the CD. Any suggestions?
