Fedora :: Install Anything; The Package Manager Is Having Trouble Contacting The Source?
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?

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Locate Package Nfs-kernel-server / Source For It?
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.

General :: Tried To Install Bcmwl-kernel-source And Now Getting Kernel Panic
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?

OpenSUSE Install :: Is Kate Source Code In Another Package?
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:
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.

CentOS 5 :: How To Install Kernel Source
I am a newbie to CentOS. I use CentOS5 for NetFPGA project.

I installed everyone except building driver for NetFPGA hardware. When I enter the "make" command, it gives an error like:

make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.18-238.12.1.el5.centos.plusxen/build: No such file or directory. Stop.

In the manual, it says that:

-If you get an error message such as "make: * /lib/modules/2.6.9-42.ELsmp/build: No such file or directory. Stop.", then kernel sources are need to build the driver.

But I don't know which package I have to install. My kernel version is

Fedora :: Viewing Source Code For Package?
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.

See the message below-

Kernel image: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.36-rc3-10-default
Initrd image: /boot/initrd-2.6.36-rc3-10-default
