Hi experts,

How do I find out whether I have the kernel source installed on my system and how do I install the kernel source?
I am using Fedora Core 3.

thanks.

Run "rpm -q kernel-source" or "rpm -qa | grep kernel".  Either one should tell you whether or not it's installed.  To install it, download the kernel-source for your architecture from http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/3/i386/os/SRPMS/ .  Run "rpm -ivh kernel-2.6.9-1.667.src.rpm"  Next run "rpmbuild -bp --target=noarch  /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/kernel-2.6.spec"

You can check this site for more info on installing the source:
