prism54 on 9.2

when i was running 9.2 rc1 i had the old version of the prism54 drivers running, and now that i installed the release of 9.2 i cant figure out how to get the source for the kernel, i tried to download the kernel-source-ect.rpm, and when i try to install it, a message comes up that everything is installed

Download the non rpm'ed non Mandraked sources

Well if you want the source to the linux kernel then I suggest that you go to and download the official Linus kernel source. A plus too is that you can use the latest release of the kernel, always a good thing if you are going to compile one. The kernel sources are compressed with both gzip and bzip, choose whatever you prefer, save and extract to /usr/src and it seems you know the rest.

Hope this helps.
