The kernel sources are in:


Be ware that /usr/src/linux is a link.

So you may check to where this links points by

ls -l /usr/src

the loadable kernel image shalle be in /boot
and it's called vmlinuz

the src folder appears is empty, even when logged in as root in the terminal

are the files hidden?

May be you did not install the kernel-source rpm package in the first place. The folder is not hidden, it is right there if you've installed the kernel source...


I think it is somewhere in 1st or 2nd cd. Or just open system-config-packages and and install kernel development package.
