Slackware 9.0 kernel source


Hello,

I seem to be having trouble finding the slack9 kernel source. I did a full install of slackware 9.0 and looked where the source code usually is "/usr/src" the only thing there is a directory named "rpm" and in rpm's subdirectories there is nothing. The main reason I'm trying to find the kernel is because I'm trying to build a module driver for my Lucent Winmodem and it can't locate the kernel headers. So if somone could help me out I'd be grateful

Thanks

If you downloaded the Slack from the internet, you will need to download the source from there too. It is not included in the ISO.

The ISO distro (1 CD) contains kernel header.
The kernel header is enough to compile winmodem (I have done it too).
You don't need the kernel source.

This is what I did. I bought Slackware (or you can download) and installed the kernel source (2.4.20). Then installed by typing installpkg <package name>.

Then I opened KDE and went to the Kernel Configuration and pick the options that I wanted. Then cd to /usr/src/linux, then ran make dep.

Then changed /etc/lilo.conf and added the image 2.4.20-kernel (I think that is the name). It seemed to work for me.

I believe that you could cd to /usr/src/linux. Type make xconfig and pick the options that you want. Then make dep, then make modules , then make modules install. Then edit lilo config file. Then reboot to the new kernel.

NOTE: Make a boot disk andmake sure it works. Then backup your data. I have had to re-install when I messed up a kernel because of a backup.

if you downloaded an iso (like me) then your /usr/src folder should only contain rpm folder in it. What you do is go to http://www.kernel.org (official kernel website) download the latest stable version (currently 2.4.22) and extract it to /usr/src directory. It will take a while to extract it and it might seem like your computer froze but it's only because after extracted the package is over 150 mb (22 mb compressed). After that you should have a folder called linux-2.4.22 in your /usr/src. Now make a link folder to linux-2.4.22 called linux in the same directory (do ln -s linux-2.4.22 linux while you're in /usr/src as root). Now you can compile your kernel. Note that by going to linux folder you actually get redirected to linux-2.4.22 because linux folder is a link.

Now I've compiled kernel. Alsa-driver install works fine now.
But now I have problem with modprobe. I have Hoontech DSP 24 soundcard.
http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc...module=ice1712

"modprobe snd-ice1712;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss" gives me error "Can't locate module"

Where it trying to find those modules?

I dont't have problems with kernel compiling. I've allready done it and alsa-drivers setup is working now. ./configure;make;make install etc...

Problem occurs when inserting modules into the kernel.

modprobe snd-ice1712;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss gives error "Can't locate module"

Those modules come with alsa-driver-package, but modprobe doesn't find them.

When I use insmod instead modprobe, I got message "... was compiled for kernel version 2.4.21 while this kernel is version 2.4.20" and "insmod -f snd-ice1712" gives me error "unresolved symbol.."
