Kernel Source Dir.


Installing linux-wlan on my RH9.0 Machine. Looking for the Kernel Source Dir. that is asked for in the config. /usr/src/linux does not exsist. Is it in another place?

/usr/src/linux is usually a symbolic link to what ever kernel source you're using.

For instance my /usr/src/linux points to linux-2.4.20-19.8

Good Luck

Ahhh... then it appears you didn't install the kernel source when you install RedHat 9.0.

No worries... simply run redhat-config-packages tool, stick in whatever CD RedHat asks for, and install the kernel source.

Good Luck

Then I guess you don't have installed the kernel-sources package. You could install it if you have the Red Hat cds. Running "redhat-config-packages" or installing it manually.
