linux-2.4.20-9.src.rpm seems to install, but where??


It is supposed to be in /usr/src/ but although after typing
rpm -ivh linux-2.4.20-9.src.rpm
it does the whole ######################################100%
Then drops back to the prompt. Anyone know where it may have gone?
I have run several file searches with no luck..

check the rpm

This command may shed some light on your problem:

rpm -qlp /filepath/linux-2.4.20-9.src.rpm

Thanks guys, but I tried them both and tinks told me it wasn't installed and jail's told me the files in the RPM. I still cannot locate it. The only kernel tree in /usr/src/ is 2.4.20-8 which is the old one. I tried recompiling that one already and I lcan't find the bzImage file after the make bzImage command. It's not where it is supposed to be.

God, I wish I were at work so I could redownload the tar.gz. It is easier than the rpm..
I searched the rh disks for kernel-sources and it says it is not there. It says that glibc-kernheaders replaces it. Of course that file is already installed.

I really want to sucessfully compile a kernel..

Not a great fan of rpms myself ...
Not too good at using them, either,
but what does
rpm -i -vv linux-2.4.20-9.src.rpm give you?


Cheers,
Tink

I tried that tinkster, and the output is too long to post here, but appears to be a listing of the options/patches available in /usr/src/redhat/sources. The other directories in usr/src/redhat are empty.

Is there a way to see what rpm is doing while unpacking? maybe I can spot where it's putting everything..
