Thread: kernel sources different than kernel ?

  1. #1

    Default kernel sources different than kernel ?

    Hi,

    I'm trying to update kernel as I have this system lockup problem with 2.6.27.7 kernel.

    There is new kernel in opensuse factory (2.6.27.13-3.6) but kernel-sources are 2.6.27.13-3.5

    I need sources to install nvidia drivers.

    Can I use that different source to compile nvidia drivers? Or can I get matching sources from somewhere?

    Or is there better "stable" kernel available?

    Those kernel RPMs are less than a day old. Maybe the mirrors haven't caught up with the latest kernel-source RPM yet. Wait a bit and try again.

    There is still no change.
    I think it is some kind of mistake?

    You quote Factory and Stable in the same breath. Why have you moved from the default oss?

    File a bug report then. The kernel-sources package seems to be 3 days behind.

    Because I have lockup symptom with stock (2.6.27.7) kernel. I just want to update kernel to get rid of this problem.

    Ok, there is still no recent kernel sources.
    Can I use this quide to build my custom kernel:
    Configure, Build and Install a Custom Linux Kernel - openSUSE

    I'd like to install latest available sources with yast and the build corresponding kernel version. I think that is ok? Guide however says that I need to have same latest kernel version running than I want to compile:

    Configure, Build and Install a Custom Linux Kernel - openSUSE

    But this is of cource impossible. Can I still do this safely?

    The 2.6.29-1.2 kernel with sources is in Factory now, available through YaST. For a reason I can't explain, there are also rpm's for 2.6.27.13-3.6 including sources but these do not show up in YaST.
