    kernel source development package Fedora 10


    When I installed Fedora 10 off the live CD I did not get the option to install the kernel/source development package. I tried to install the correct package using yum, but I have not been able to get the source link to my kernel, so when I build my driver it fails. What package do I need to load in order to compile my driver. I have been using a build script provided by PLX, up until now it has worked so I haven't had to really dig too deep into it. The error messages I am getting imply that I only need the source link.

    Hello and Welcome.
    Try this with YUM
    Code:
    yum -y install kernel-devel
    Code:
    yum -y install kernel-headers

    Welcome to LinuxForums!

    You may also need to install a couple other things... I'm not sure if they would be included on the LiveCD.
    Code:
    yum install -y make
    yum install -y gcc
    If you already have them, then you're golden.
