Angry Where Can I Find Kernel Source after Installation


Hi,
My name is Satish Boddapati.
I have installed RedHat 9 in my system.
Can you please hint me where can I find the source software with the folder name linux 2.4 etc.., it is not visible in the /usr/src directory.
It is showing only two folders namely redhat and debug, but, without any kernel (linux 2.4) folder.
I have tried with rpm facility and it is giving it is already installed.
(using kernel-2.4.20-6.i686.rpm) if I use with -ivf option. and when I tried to check the location of the kernel with -qd option it is giving as it is not installed.
Please guide me to locate my linux 2.4 folder or if I have to load any other software. My Linux software is of 2 CD's(RedHat 9)
Thanks & regards
Satish

The source is not installed, I guess.

Well, maybe you should see the rpm management tree again. According to what is seen in your /usr/src the kernel source is not installed. Thus, you should install the kernel_src package if you want to see the kernel source code. Should you don't have it on your installation CDs you may donwload it from www.kernel.org.

To summarize this:

1- Install kernel_src package

or

2- download the source from kernel.org

Cheers,

Atwa
