Kernal Source Code

Where does one find the Kernal Source Code for Mandrake? Specifically 9.2 and 10.1. I have the download CD's and just assumed that Mandrake made the source CD's easily available but I have not been able to locate them at this point in time.

simply type "uname -r" at command prompt to find out what kernel version you have, then in rpmdrake type "kernel" in the search bar. Then install the kernel source that matches the kernel version #'s exactly.

As long as you have not downloaded a new kernel from other sources, (you would know, if you are not sure, I assure you you did not) then the kernel source will be found by rpmdrake on one of your installation disks.
