General :: Download - Re-Downloading (Kernel) Source?
Oct 21, 2010
yesterday i downloaded source of my virtual linux kernel and tried to compile it. It compiled indeed but could not boot from the new kernel. Then today i decided to re-downloading after removing the folder where source files are located but it said "linux source is already the newest version"
I use the command below: sudo apt-get install linux-source What should i do to be able to re-download the source.
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 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?
what the Kernel Module Source packages are called?... This guide I am trying to follow is obviously dated but it is the only solid lead I have been able to find towards making my ram work...This is the original thread on the NVNEWs boards: Unable to install Nvidia driver on 9500M + Ubuntu - Page 2 - nV News Forums,Read through that thread I linked to the NVidia forums for a detailed run down of what is wrong.
The semi short version: There is some sort of issue with the NVidia driver on the G1Sn (and several other Asus Models) and the way the Linux Kernel address memory, the issue results in not being able to use more than 2 Gigs of ram with the Nivida drivers. There is a patch (again check the nvidia forum link) that people said they had applied to fix this issue. At this point I am seriously considering Vista again if I can't get this working I love Ubuntu but I hate having my hardware limited by my software...where to download the files I need to recompile in the Kernel with the patch I need for my ram to work?
I tried posting there but it seems like the thread is long dead.. how I can download the needed files and maybe how I add these lines to it?I also started a thread on the ubuntu forums here: [ubuntu] Downloading Current Kernel Sources.
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 am very curious about updated graphics in GRUB2. So I want to compile and load grub2. Where can I get the grub2 source code. While browsing I got two links [/COLOR] [URL] [URL] First one has upto 1.98. Second link is not working. Can someone point the link where GRUB2 is available.
I'm about to recompile PHP from source and was planning to download the source code to my Ubuntu machine. Is there a standard place where all the source code goes? I know that PHP has many dependencies and would like to hopefully put it in the right place so as to satisfy as many as possible.
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
how to upgrade or install a updated kernel version (3.0).I am using RHEL 5 with kernel 2.6.18-8.I am trying to upgrade through source downloaded at [URL.Also will it be a good practice to upgrade the existing kernel?
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
I searched the faq, I did a search online for this etc. The reason I ask is that suse on the download page of 11.3 states don't download directly since it is very slow and has no check sum. Therefore the iso may be flawed and you have spent 10 hrs trying to download the iso. My "fast" internet through qwest is at 1.5 mbps download so I assume that is why it is so slow to download the iso of 4.7 Gb.Now for the question the download page suggets you use bit torrent since it does the checksum but will download the iso no faster than the direct method. Second is to use check metalink with the addon in Firefox downthemall. I did this and had quite a time getting the iso link for 11.3 to start downloading. I would start downthemall from the Firefox toolbar and I thought wow!!! it downloaded that iso fast, how cool. Well it was not the iso but the website for the download page! At one point I got it to start downloading the iso but came in this morining and it was still going after 17hrs and showed several hours to go. I gave up and deleated it.
This afternoon I just gave in and started the download again using the bit torrent and I am waiting for the download to finish. I did eveything the site indicated but after and hour I noticed under logger it said **** openSuse-11.3-DVD i586 iso: PIECE 2206 FAILED HASH CHECK. It shows this same message from the begining of the download 7hrs ago to the last few minutes on each section. It states it is 75% complete? Is this normal or am I wasting 10 more hours? Sorry if this is not the place for this question but I never had trouble with downloading 11.2 and burning it to the disk. I think I just used the Directlink method and crossed my fingers. It did download ok!
Kernel Panic. I am using "HP Pavilion dvb 111x" "AMD Turion X2" "ATI RADEON Graphic Card" And "RHEL5"
I am not register user of Redhat. I am trying to switch kernel form linux-2.6.18.X To linux-184.108.40.206. I had download source of kernel and install it as per README file. During installation everything was fair but as I am trying to boot from my new kernel it shows me "Kernel Panic" error. It Displays

My instructor at school had downloaded fedora on my external hard drive. His download was a 32 bit, so I could still load on my 64 bit at home.would allow me to open guest on both computers.However, circumstances with the login occurred, and I have to re install.I am trying to find the exact same thing that he had (he is not available for me to use the cd). All I have is the kernel, as this was all that would show. I want to make sure I download the correct version, so I can continue to use the guest on the 32 and 64 bit machines.The kernel is: 18.104.22.168-127.fc12.i686.PAE
Trying to install virtualbox in F12 but fails when recompiling kernel module. Output of vbox-install log is:

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.
It sounds like he's making a difference between the kernel "source code" and the kernel itself(as in the downloaded file/ files) but the way he talks about both is the same.So then, if one had already "installed" the "kernel sources code," why would he need the "tarball with the newest Linux kernel?" He's already "installed" a kernel, right?
I'm running CentOS 5.3 and would like to know what the "best" or "proper" method is to build a custom kernel using the generic kernel sources from kernel.org. Most of the references I've found talk about modifying the current CentOS kernel using the RPM way. I really want to have the latest kernel due to some important security issues that haven't been addressed in the current CentOS 5.3 kernel.
I compiled the 184.108.40.206 kernel and <insert drumroll> it boots!(my first kernel roll, I'm kind of shocked actually) That's the good news. The bad news is that my NVIDIA drivers are gone in the wind. That's not entirely true as I can still boot into the old kernel and startx. Is there a way to download the driver using the command line for reinstall?
I was trying to run VMWare player but it prompt me that the vmmon module could not compile. After a search in the forum, I have install the kernel-source and kernel-syms. And now it prompt me a dialog: "Before you can run VMWare, several modules must be compiled and loaded into the running kernel."
This dialog require me to give the location of the "Kernel Header 220.127.116.11-1.2-default". I am not able to locate the kernel source in OpenSUSE 11.4, or may be I haven't download it yet. May I know where can I get/download the kernel source?
