kernel with no dev?


hey guys ive gotten my FC5 system almost up and running. Last step is to install ndiswrapper again and get my wifi back. One question, when I installed my ati drivers from livna.org (which is working awsome!!!) it updated my kernel to the following:

# uname -r
2.6.17-1.2157_FC5smp

I need the dev of this kernel to compile ndiswrapper... But I can't find it anywhere. How can I find this? I searched the add/remove programs livna.org and I'm at a lost. If anyone can help me or advise me please do.

Thanks in advance,
nomb

it's called "kernel-devel" and is nothing to do with livna, it's in the fc5 updates repo just like the kernel itself. livna just conpiles ati and nvidia modules against the official fedora released kernels, they don't do the kernels your system is running.

I opened up the package manager and did a search for kernel-devel and got nothing back. How can I find the right one and install it?

Thanks again
