View Full Version : Knoppix and the source files

06-25-2005, 08:46 PM
Hi Guys,

About 3 months ago I installed version 3.8 of Knoppix. It has been working fine for my Asterisk server. Recently I purchased a hardware card that I installed in attempting to install a package called zaptel I noticed that the version of Knoppix that I have does not have any of the source files /usr/src/linux2.6.11/ This directory is empty.

Can I install these source files after the fact and if so how?

Connect to the internet

open a terminal console type:

(prompt for root password, enter it)
apt-get update && apt-get install kernel-source-2.6.11 synaptic && exit

You'll now have the kernel sources and synaptic (which is an easy peasy front end to apt-get). I suspect you'll need the kernel headers, too, and synaptic will make it easy to find the appropriate ones.
