I have installed the fedora 14, but there is no kernel source tree.I read the doc "building a custom kernel".But I don't want to rebuild a new kernel.I just want to install the source tree of current kernel.Could someone tell me the way?
I first installed Fedora 15 (full clean install) on a spare laptop I had sitting around and the install went flawlessly. I was able to install it and use it right out the gate. I was then able to install two of my must-have programs, xchat and libreoffice without any problems either.Then I tried the same thing on my primary desktop at work (and since I run an IT department, I already have permission to do this :-)
The problem I'm getting is trying to install anything;the package manager is having trouble contacting the source.The exact error reads: "Software source download failed. Could not contact source 'fedora', so it will be disabled."I have not made anychanges to the firewall on the machine and the machine does have a working internet connection (I am posting from the machine). Any tips or advice on ways to troubleshoot would be great. I'm by no means a linux expert, but I can get around the system fairly well
I'm seeking for a site to manually download the source of the kernel 2.6.31-14-generic for Ubuntu 9.10. I did search through the addresses listed in my /etc/apt/sources.list file but that was of no help. So could somebody please give me a precise address to download from?
I am an extremely new Ubuntu Server user. I am trying to install NFS on a new Ubuntu Server 10.10 installation. When running the command sudo apt-get install nfs-kernel-server nfs-common portmap, I was previously getting the message:
E: unable to locate package nfs-kernel-server
I'm sure I don't have the correct sources for installation, I just don't know source I need to add.
I am running an Hp Pavillion dv6000 with the Broadcom card that never seems to work for Linux. I recently talked with my friend who said he found a way to get it work.following his instructions I opened Synaptic and checked the package bmcwl-kernel-source to be installed.I went through the process of it all and it said it had install successfully. I restarted the computer and when I tried to enter my operating system I got this error "Kernel panic - not syncing : VFS : Unable to mount root fs on unknown - block(8,1)" I have previous versions of Linux on my computer so I can still get in to those if need be but I don't know how to undo what I did or why it isn't working for that matter. Does anyone have any ideas as to why I am getting this error and how I can fix it?

I wanted to fix something in the Kate editor. So instead of downloading it from it's website (Get It! - Kate | Get an Edge in Editing) I wanted to download the "openSUSE Kate" source package. But as you can see, there is no source package available. I tested it with source installation of "zypper" (zypper si zypper) and it worked.Any ideas? Is the kate source code in another package?
Which is the best way to install kernel from source? I want to download it here: http://kernel.org/ But it is tar.bz2 How can I install it to my debian? I know I have kernels in backports and repos, but I want to test and install it from source. It is good idea to convert it to deb and install it with dpkg -i kernel.deb? O maybe there are better way?
I was a die hard Ubuntu user for the last 2 years and decided to use something more advanced or different. My question (after searching the crap out of Google) is how can I view the source code of Fedora? I have found many sites explaining this but it is not written in terms that are easy for me to understand. I haven't been programming for years and using advanced features in Linux so most of these sites are not explaining out and most are explaining how to build and add on to the kernel.
I had somewhat of a simple questioned I tried out the latest revision to the Kernel of Day for Opensuse 11.2 built against the master. kernel-default-2.6.36-rc3.10.1.i586.rpm however looking at the tree it appears Novell/Suse doesn't release the source.rpm thinking I could recompile it to support the dependencies that I'm missing. See the message below-

i downloaded kernel source rpm. i.e kernel-2.6.18-53.el5.src.rpm for my kernel 2.6.18-53.el5. i installed succeffully above src.rpm using command .. rpmbuild --rebuild kernel-2.6.18-53.el5.src.rpm it created a directory in /usr/src/redhat
then i manually deleted the redhat directory just because i want to rebuild the kernel source again.so i i removed the redhat directory but now i tried to excute above rpmbuild command again but it is failed. saying: error:cannot create %sourcedir /usr/src/redhat/sources error:kernel-2.6.18-53.el5.src.rpm cannot be installed
how to install redhat 6 beta kernel source rpm under CentOS 5.5? I just download the kernel source rpm-- kernel-2.6.32-19.el6.src.rpm. And I tried run "rpm -i ", it was failure. The error message is "error: unpacking of archive failed on file /home/xliang/rpmbuild/SOURCES/Fedora-KVM-allow-userspace-to-adjust-kvmclock-offset.patch;4bf439e4: cpio: MD5 sum mismatch"
i am already a little bit familiar with linux and now i want to know better the linux OS. i have downloaded the source code of the krnel from the kernel.org and i dont understand the linux source trees organization, so can somebody do me a favor and give me a link to some internet page (or at least a book) that explains that?? i have searched in the internet with the tag:::linux source trees organization and i have not found nothing interesting
In order to configure a dual display in a fresh 11.4 installation, I am attempting to install the nVidia driver according to the instructions in SDB:NVIDIA the hard way - openSUSE. I have not previously compiled or configured a kernel so I largely followed the instructions from OpenSUSE 11.2 - How to compile a Kernel for Newbies.The currently installed kernel is 188.8.131.52-1.2-desktop. The graphics card is an ASUS EN9600GSO (512MB).
In Yast, I installed gcc, make, kernel-devel (v. 184.108.40.206-1.2) and kernel-desktop-devel (v. 220.127.116.11-1.2). Per the "hard way" instructions, I did not install kernel-source.
I installed the kernel source RPM to add a patch to a driver kernel module that didn't support my NIC. Now that the patch is part of the official source tree I no longer need the kernel source and I want to delete it. Can I just do rm -rf rpmbuild or do I need to run the reverse of the rpm commands described in Section 1 of [URL].
So after getting around the Fakeraid bug, and the grub bug, and all the other bugs killing my system fixed and then i moved on to install my video driver. There was nothing in Administration>Hardware Drivers, so i downloaded the latest driver for my two 8600m gt cards. Did the whole ctrl+alt+f2 and then stopping xserver and then running the driver install only to run into yet another damn bug(see log below)
I have tried fixing it by doing what other threads have said to do e.g:[URL] still nothing. Below is the Nvidia log.
currently I'm using a kernel from kernel-mainline [url], because thermal won't work satisfying with the shipped kernel from ubuntu and would like to install tp_smapi (including modules hdaps and thinkpad_ec), but the installation failed, because the system pretending, that kernel-headers missing.
Results in telling the system, that kernel-headers are installed.
But then the upcoming dialog-box of module-assistant telling me, that the kernel-headers are not installed and therefore installation of tp_smapi fails.
When trying to install the nvidia graphics driver I get the following error-message:
ERROR: The kernel header file '/usr/src/linux/include/linux/version.h' does not exist. The most likely reason for this is that the kernel source files in '/usr/src/linux' have not been configured. How do I configure the kernel source files?
I am a little optimistic now after my problem of wifi was solved by stoat that presisted for about a year, now i am trying to install my vpn client. he asks me to write the path of kernel source code directory : and i answer by:/lib/modules/18.104.22.168-57.fc8/build/
But he answers no such directory or file and i dont know why
The build is covered by a red box when displayed by a terminal so can any body tells me where i can find my kernel source directory or i should install them, how
I've been trying to install Ubuntu Server on an old server since a couple of days and have been unsuccessful. I've google'd a bit but found no solid solution yet to this problem. Everything goes fine and I'm able to partition my SCSI drives and everything. After the installation starts unpacking and copying files this happens. I have to mention that I'm installing from a USB drive with the following added at the end of the normal install options:
--install cdrom-detect/try-usb=true Version I'm trying to install: Ubuntu 9.10 i386 Server CPU: AMD Athlon XP 2000+ RAM: DDR 2*256MB MOBO: ECS K7VTA3 VIA KT266A socket A DDR
I have done a new install of Fedora 14 but the RTL8191 wirless card is not being recognised. Realtek have provided the driver source but the make operation is failing because (I think) Fedora 14 isn't provided with the kernel source to enable it to complete successfully.
Basically (in easy to understand steps): how do I download correctly the Kernel source to enable the driver make operation to proceed?
Is it possible to get a package via yum that has the kernel sources? In the "Add/Remove Software" GUI program, I have enabled the "Fedora source" s/w repository. Even then, the only kernel package I can find is the "The Linux Kernel", linux-22.214.171.124-170... which essentially provides only the kernel binaries and headers but not the source.
however,, there are no kmod-wl packages for that kernel, so i have no wireless at the moment. how do i build / obtain kmod-wl package for my kernel? rebuilding the kmow-wl src packages does occure in build for an older kernel:
I installed the latest kernel liquorix (2.6.35) but when i want to install the Nvidia driver downloaded on the Nvidia website (256.53), i have an error message because Nvidia doesn't found the kernel source tree.
I install linux-image-2.6.35-6.dmz.2-liquorix-686_2.6.35-16_i386.deb, linux-headers-2.6.35-6.dmz.2-liquorix-686_2.6.35-16_i386.deb and build-essential. I don't understand why the installation doesn't works.
