Unhappy Unable To Find Slack 9.0 Kernel Source


Hello All,

Just installed slackware 9.0 and I cannot locate the kernel or the makefiles so that i can recompliel to my liking, used the install procedure like i do on all my installs, but no dice. the location for which I am trying to find these files is /usr/src/linux however when I go to /usr/src the only thing that is there is a folder called rpm...any ideas?.....thanks

The Slack 9.0 does not include the kernel source because of CD space limitations. You will need to download from the mirror of your choice from the slackware/k disk set. Then install package.

Or you could just download any old kernel, or any new kernel :-)
The slackware kernel source package is only the vanilla source in a slack pack.

Why 2.5.9 in particular?, if your planing to test the development kernels then it would be best to start with the most recent - 2.5.66.

just in case:
2.4.20 is the latest stable kernel, and i think most people would recommend you download that one. Like said, 2.5.9 is a development kernel and 2.5.66 would be preferable.
