Thread: How to find the source code, or SRPM, for open-vm-tools kernel modules?

    Default How to find the source code, or SRPM, for open-vm-tools kernel modules?

    I'm relatively new to OpenSuse and the Yast package manager. Is there a canonical way for obtaining the source code of a RPM provided in YAST? For example, I'm looking for a way to get the source for vmware-guest-kmp-desktop, the kernel modules of open-vm-tools.

    Hi
    Open YaST Software Repositories and add the source repository, then you
    can either use YaST Software management or zypper to install the src
    rpm.

    You can also obtain just the src rpm with a search here;
    http://software.opensuse.org/search?
