How to download the kernel source code of Ubuntu
 
Hi,

For the customer's requirement, we need to re-compile the kernel image of Ubuntu12.04, such as Linux-3.2.0-23.36. So would you please help to tell where I can download the kernel source code? The standard kernel on http://www.kernel.org/????

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

the source corresponding to your running kernel should be in the package called "linux-source-$(uname -r)". So, you should be able to download it with the following command.
Code:

sudo apt-get install linux-source-$(uname -r)
The source will be in /usr/src.

You can recompile it using what ever method you like, but I would recommend using the make-kpkg command from the "kernel-package" package.

HTH,

EVo2.

In case you are interested in Ubuntu kernels from the Ubuntu developers that you can download as already compiled .deb packages, you can get them from here:
http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/
That site includes standard Ubuntu kernels as well as kernels that have not yet entered into the standard Ubuntu repositories.

Hi,
Thanks for your kindly reply.
But when I run sudo apt-get install linux-source-$(uname -r) on my Ubuntu12.04 system, the following error messages will show:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package linux-source-3.2.0-23-generic-pae
E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'linux-source-3.2.0-23-generic-pae'
So it seems it can not find it. Did you ever seen this before?

Did you do:

Code:

sudo apt-get update
first?

evo2 10-31-2012 10:10 PM

Hi,

oops, linux-source-$(uname -r) might be too specfic. Please just try linux-source-3.2.0
