    Slackpkg Kernel sources?


    Hi,


    I have a 12.1 slackware box and use slackpkg from the beginning as my pkg manager but now i need kernel sources, I realize that /usr/src/ is emppty. I think when I upgrade the kernel (many times) slackpkg dont keep the sources. How can make it keep??

    tks

    Just because the kernel is installed doesn't mean the sources will be installed as well. Slackware's kernel should be in the k/ director of the CD. You can go to slackware.com to find a mirror and download the package from one of them.
