mdk pwrpk 10.1 - kernel source needed


Hello?

I have a running Mandrake PowerPack 10.1, and
am in need of kernel source.

How can I add the kernel source to the running system?

I purchased this from a generic Linux vendor with a 6-CD set.

I've never used the 6th CD during the install even when I selected
all "category" boxes. Could this be the source CD?

Thanks.

If you open Mandrake Control Center and go to Software Management, then Install Software, you should find a package called

kernel-source-2.6-2.6.8.1-12mdk

Select it and install it and you're good to go.

Nah, don't worry, I know. Just wanted to make the distinction so there's no confusion or anything for the original poster.

Hi thunderweasel and carl0ski,

Great! Thanks for your quick tips.

However, during my very first package selection install,
I didn't encounter selecting kernel sources. Maybe, I carelessly
neglected it, but I didn't see it during the install.

I only have a 6-CD set; I'm afraid if either of your method
prompts me for a separate DVD (?) source code. I hope not.

Regards,

Don't worry if you dont have a source (CD DVD website FTP. hdd) added to media manager during install or the urpmi.addmedia command it will not evevr in a million years ask for a cd you dont have.

You don't get an option to install kernel-source-2.6 during installation its a hidden option and can't even be installed in powerpack during iniatial install.

but it is still free to download from urpmi kernel-source-2.6

Do yourself a favor and go to http://easyurpmi.zarb.org, set up your sources, and you'll probably never need your CD's again ever.
