updating kernel, no '/usr/src/linux' directory?


http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=302954
This is a tutorial that I am working through, however, when I got to this part:
Quote:
next we update the kernel module (if you have updated prior to installing this make sure the source is the same as the kernel you are running. if they are different obviously it wont work. simply go back to YaST/YoU and d/l the correct kernel-source.)

cd to /usr/src/linux
I got stuck. As this directory doesn't exist.
What am I doing wrong? Please ask for specific details, if this is too vague.

Thank you.

Another thought

I think that I haven't installed the kernel-source package as the tutorial said to:
Quote:
i started with a clean install of 9.2 pro. during the install i added gcc, kernel-source, and make. you can do that by searching the packages. these are very important.
However, this package is not on my installation CD. Can I just download the appropriate version of the kernel-source rpm?

Thanks, again.

Solved.

I have SuSE 9.1 personal edition and so I don't have the kernel-source, gcc or make packages, so I had to download them.
