    Default Kernel-Headers for 2.6.29

    I have recently updated the kernel on my openSuse 11.1 system to 2.6.29-1-pae, using pre-compiled rpms from the openSuse Build Service.

    I did this to provide support for my TV card.

    Everything seems to work perfectly.

    I now want to install a driver for my modem (from the linmodems project), which needs compiling. I have never had to do this before, so I have very little knowledge of the process.

    I seem to need the kernel-source, kernel-syms and kernel-headers packages. I have found and downloaded the first two, but I can't find the kernel headers for 2.6.29 anywhere.

    I would be grateful for any advice on how to proceed.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Kernel-source and kernel-syms are sufficient, the package "linux-kernel-headers" should not be replaced.

    Read the output of

    Code:
    rpm -qi linux-kernel-headers

    Phew! That's a relief. I can stop hunting.Thanks, Akoellh.

    I've done as you suggest and read rpm -qi linux-kernel-headers.

    Am I correct to assume that I would need 2.6.29's kernel headers if I wished to re-compile the kernel, but not to build a module?
