The reason it doesn't help me is when I build the rpm from the src.rpm it does not give me the source files for the kernel. The installation puts the compiled kernel modules in /lib/modules/2.6.9-1.667.root
There is a symlink to the source but when I looked in the source directory for the source code there were no souce files, only Makefiles and in some cases Kconfig files. I need to change one setting in the .config file. Since there are no source files I can't recompile the kernel. The only way I was able to get the kernel source on my computer was to install the src.rpm and then untar the kernel source and put it in the /usr/src directory. However when I did that the patches that redhat implemented were not appled to the kernel and the kernel would not compile completely.
