    How do I get kernel source in mandrake 9.1?


    I never saw an option that let me install the kernel source during the install. I figured it must do it automatically, but I just tried to install drivers and it said "kernel source not found" What do I do now?

    go to ftp://ftp.planetmirror.com/pub/Mandrake/9.1/i586/SRPMS and download the appropriate kernel, then install it (rpm -Uvh [filename])

    you may find it on your install CDs. Save you the download.

    Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
    Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS

    If you've got a 3CD set of Mandrake 9.1 or an official box set, the kernel sources are on there. Go to the package manager and do a search for kernel and you should be able to find them. Alternatively, go to kernel.org and download the sources there as .tar.bz2.
