Ubuntu :: Source Code Of The Krnel From The Kernel.org - Source Trees Organization
Apr 11, 2011
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
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 was trying to install VPN client for my Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit. During the installation process the terminal reads:
"Directory containing linux kernel source code [/lib/modules/2.6.31-21-generic/build]"
On that I pressed enter for the default option (in bold). After a few more steps I reached the following error:
Making module sh: Can't open ./driver_build.sh Failed to make module "cisco_ipsec.ko".
[/lib/modules/2.6.31-21-generic/build] is the location where the installer expects the kernel source to be (I am guessing). So unless I correct the terminal (by providing the location of the kernel source), I think I will keep on getting the same error message.
So to get the kernel source I visited: [URL]From there I copy pasted the command:
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/126.96.36.199-57.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 want to edit linux kernel source code in MS Visual Studio. I saw the code and these are c files but there is no project file that i open it and whole project opens up. I can open each individual file but not the whole project.
I'm wondering if any Open Sourced OS and services/applications installed in an valid business organization, is there anything I should be worrying about in terms of using open source os/applications for business?
Reason being is in case auditing comes, does our open source items get audited?
I have Ubuntu, Fedora, CentOS running in my internal network running multiple services/applications and being used for business (LAMP stack, SVN, BIND, etc...).
I have been using Linux for 2 months, specifically Ubuntu, and been wondering where the source code is. Not only do I wonder where the kernel source code is but also where the source code for the installed programs are.
I am wonder if somebody could take the time to teach me to install or compile a program from source.I have downloaded ZSNES from sourceforge but cannot figure out how to install it from the command prompt or using the package manager.
I want to know if it is possible to edit the source code of the programs in Linux. Like, take the calculator for instance. If I want to add a user-defined function to it, how can I do it - if I can do it at all? In general, where and how can I look at the source code of such programs ?
I have been the webmaster of a webpage for a few years and I have always installed Apache and PHP using the source code. The reason is that I wanted to use a recent version of them and I couldn't find it in the repositories.
Now, we are going to purchase a new server with Ubuntu (we were using Fedora in the previous one) and I don't know if install those packages using synaptic (much easier) or install them from scratch using the source code.
Synaptic is great, specially installing modules for PHP, but I am afraid of not having updated versions in a few months.
I was wondering if there are any tools that automate the process of installing from source for example tar.gz or tar.bz2. I have used kludge installer but I am looking for something that doesn't make me install any dependencies for example I want a bash shell script it just runs the commands you normally do but faster.
I am having a problem installing a program, AudioTester v1.6 and tests FLACs for errors. [URL]. The .zip file has a windows executable '.exe' and the source code. The code was written for Windows. The source code is written in C++ (.cpp) with C header (.h) files, xml (.vcproj) and one '.exe.manifest'(?) file. I tried the usual commands for compiling (./configure, autogen, make) the source code but no luck. Can I compile this code for Ubuntu/linux? Is there anything I can do with the code? And If so what do I need to do.
I just pulled the MS Removal Tool executable off a Windows 7 machine. Is there a way I can view the code on my Ubuntu machine? I am curious how they block the "real" av software from running. I did get rid of it, pretty simple.
Where I can get a disc for the Fedora 11 source code? I really like this release of fedora and want to keep it for the future. Also, what's the difference between SRPM and RPMs? What does an SRPM do when you install it and what is it's purpose?
