installing kernal source...

Just make sure you have your kernel sources installed. You can use Yast2 to get and install them. Also, make sure they are linked to /usr/src/linux. If they are not, just link them:

* ln -s /usr/src/linux-kernel-2.X.X /usr/src/linux

If a symbolic link already exists, but you are sure it's not your kernels, just erase it before making the new one.

* rm /usr/src/linux

how do i use yast to install kernal source

Is it that hard to click the button that says "Install and Remove Software" and type the word kernel?
