    Whar's the Kernel Source?

    Sorry if this has been asked and answered, but I'm a noobie looking for a quick solution to my problems

    So, where's the kernel source for Knoppix 3.2? Available? I've seen from some other posts that it's custom, but is it downloadable?

    Yes it's all downloadable

    As far as the v3.2 2003-03-30 that I'm using goes...

    I think everything you need's already in /usr/src, except for the source codes for the kernel and the xfs kernel patch, which can be d/l'd from as .deb packages. You'll also want to apply knoppix-kernel.patch, which raises the character limit for the boot prompt from 256 to 512 characters. You can ignore the xfs patch if you don't plan on supporting the xfs filesystem.

    Specific info in /usr/src/kernel-source.README.

    Not sure what the purpose of the included linux-2.4.20-xfs directories and the ptrace patch may be (didn't check), but nothing's blown up as a result of my ignoring them

    AFAIK, Knoppix doesn't come with the Kernel source. All it comes with are the kernel headers, and they can be found in /usr/src/linux.

    ACtualy, it's the lack of kernel source is why I've decided to bag my knoppix hd-install and go with Mandrake. you maek compiling a new kernel sound prety easy, but it's realy not unless you are experienced.
