Kernel Source


Hi there,

i try to install modem driver for my laptop and the source is required.

when i do uname -a, i got this:

Linux localhost 2.6.18-1.2849.fc6xen #1 SMP Fri Nov 10 13:56:52 EST 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux


i cannt find the kernel source in my linux box. is there anyway i can download it so that i can get my modem runs?

seems like you are running fedora core 6. i am pretty sure there exist the rpm package w/ kernel sources. just install it using fedoras package manager (yum?). cheers, joe
