How do I install kernel-source
« on: February 07, 2009, 07:06:50 pm »
 I need install the kernel-source but, I can't seem to get anywhere. Either I can't get it to go any help on this would be really appreciated. I did try to
Code: [Select]
sudo wget http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/linux-2.6.27.11.tar.bz2
#sudo tar jxvf linux-2.6.27.11.tar.bz2
#sudo ln -s linux-2.6.27.11 linux
#sudo cd linux
#sudo cp ../linux-headers-`uname -r`/.config . #(copy the previous kernel config to current dir (notice the '.'). You could use a different config if you like or start from scratch.
#sudo make oldconfig #(I usually accept the defaults for the new options. This takes all the options from the previous stock build
#sudo make-kpkg --append-to-version `date +"-%H%M-%d%m%Y"` kernel_image #builds a new kernel with todays time/date appended to the version number. You can omit this or use a different string
#sudo dpkg -i /usr/src/kernel_image.......deb #install whatever the name was of this kernel file you just created
#sudo reboot
I get to make-kpkg etc. then I get an error

thanks Hari. But, why can't I find how to add the kernel source. If I follow one of the guides on upgrading my kernel am I going toast this version of MCE(which is 0810 alpha1)[I couldn't install off the install DVD] the kernel is 2.6.27.11-generic. I am kind of new to kernels I have only used the one's that came with the distro's.

did you try to coompile it manually (read without kpkg)
