Where do I get the kernel source for FC3?


If I want to recompile the kernel for FC3, where can I get the kernel source and config for the default kenel that ships with it?

And why dont you have the option of installing the kernel source code when you install FC?

Try www.kernel.org! You can download the right version for your kernel and unpack it in /usr/src...

Id prefer to get the exact source used to compile the kernel that ships with FC3. That way, I can also see how the current kernel is configured.

There's gotta be some way to track this down. RedHat used to give you the option of whether you installed the kernel source during the installation process. Is there a source RPM or something that has everything for the default kernel?

Okay, I answered my own question. There is a Source RPM that contains the code for the kernel trhat ships with each version of Redhat/Fedora
