    Kernel Gone Missing


    I'm currently trying to configure a Linksys Wlan card for my IBM ThinkPad, running MDK 10.1. That's not really important. The problem is, when it asks for the kernel directory, it shows /usr/src/linux. That directory doesn't even exist on my computer. I checked the manual, and yep, that's where it's supposed to be. All I have is this:

    /usr/src/RPM
    /usr/src/RPM/BUILD
    .../SOURCES
    .../RPMS
    .../SPECS
    .../SRPMS


    None of these have anything tying into the kernel. Where could it be?

    You don't have the kernel sources installed. Try doing:
    Code:
    urpmi kernel-sources
    or something similar. Or if you want the absolute latest, grab a tarball from http://kernel.org and extract to /usr/src/
