Kernel Installation


I've been following the instructions in this HOWTO (http://www.rage3d.com/content/articles/atilinuxhowto/) and it says:

"First of all you should make sure your kernel sources are all set up. After you have them unpacked in /usr/src/your-kernel-sources you must make sure to link them to /usr/src/linux with the following command:

* ln -s /usr/src/your-kernel-sources /usr/src/linux

If the linux link already exist you can remove it with the command:

* rm /usr/src/linux" (--Linked above)

Well, my kernel sources aren't in /usr/src. I'm running Mandrake 10 OE and all I have in /usr/src/ is a folder called RPM.

What do I do?

you install them first... you've even gone so far as to quote this already...

I thought the author was referring to my current Kernel source--obviously not.

Nevermind then.

he is, but it's not installed by default, as it takes up a lot of space.
