    Installed Version vs. Available Version


    Wanring. Linux Newbie. If the question doesn't make this obvious.

    Am using Linux Ent. 10.1. The installed version of the kernel (kernel-default package) is 2.6.16.20-0.12 while the available version is 2.6.16.13-4. Seems a bit odd to me, but OK. My problem is, however, that I am installing an application that needs the kernel header files. So, I go to install those and I get version 2.6.16.13-4, the available. The app I'm trying to install notices that the kernel version is different that the kernel source and will not install.

    How do I get the kernel source in line with the installed kernel? Or am I just totally off base.

    Which distro are you using? There's nothing like Linux Enterprise 10.1 out there, be a little more specific.
    Usually an update to the whole sytem should put all the packages in on any distro
