Thread: Where is the source kernel installed?

  1. #1

    Default Where is the source kernel installed?

    Hi,
    I want to install the OPENSUSE source kernel package. The Yast2--software installation has that module. Because my previous hard disk space is too small, I repartitioned a new extention partition, then a logic drive on it. I want to know how can I find the installed source kernel? I cannot find any clue when I install the source kernel? BTW, where has the help info on my question? Thanks.

    Hi,
    It seems the installation complains the hard disk space is not enough. How can I be allowed to select installation path and logic drive? Thanks.

    /usr/src

    don't know if this may be different in other installations, but you can
    find out the location of installed packages in yast. when you select a
    package, by default a description is shown at the bottom. on top of that
    info are tabs, to show different versions, and also files the package
    installed on your system.

    It sounds like you need to do something to free up some space before you do anything else, or you may have serious problems down the line. Show the output of df -l.

    Smile Re: Where is the source kernel installed?

    Hello freerjw and sorry to hear about your problems. To your first question if I open YaST / Software / Software Management, search on kernel and select kernel-source and then go to the file listing tab, here is what it says:

    Code:
    /usr/src/linux
    /usr/src/linux-2.6.37-20
    /usr/src/linux-2.6.37-20/.mailmap
    /usr/src/linux-2.6.37-20/COPYING
    /usr/src/linux-2.6.37-20/CREDITS
    /usr/src/linux-2.6.37-20/Documentation
    
    ..... (lots of stuff in here I removed to fit into this message)
    
    /usr/src/linux-2.6.37-20/Documentation/cris
    This is for openSUSE 11.4 RC1, but you will find a similar listing for any openSUSE version. As to your second problem let me say that it is like playing a puzzle game with a single square open to get more room on the same hard drive and many people opt to reinstall rather than go through the trouble to expand/contract existing partitions. Why not provide the following information from a terminal session and lets see what we can suggest to you:

    Code:
    su -
    password:
    fdisk -l
    cat /etc/fstab
    You enter the root user password in response to the password: prompt and do not enter the word password:. I suggest going into the advanced message editor, copy and past the code from the above commands, highlight all of this code and then press the code # button in the editor. It will appear just as the file listing did in this message.

    Thank You,

    You can not.

    Rather, create that new partition in the exact directory that the sources
    are being to be installed, that is, /usr/src/.
