Thread: Problem with kernel-source repo

  1. #1

    Default Problem with kernel-source repo

    I was trying to install kernel-source using the command from https://software.opensuse.org/downlo...=kernel-source

    However, on running
    Code:
    zypper addrepo http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/openSUSE:Leap:42.1:Update/ports/openSUSE:Leap:42.1:Update.repo
    i get
    Code:
    File '/repositories/openSUSE:Leap:42.1:Update/ports/openSUSE:Leap:42.1:Update.repo' not found on medium 'http://download.opensuse.org/'                                     
    
    Abort, retry, ignore? [a/r/i/? shows all options] (a):
    
    retrying multiple times doesn't help. Is there a work around to this? Is there another way i can get kernel-source?

    Hi
    The update repo is already added, either via YasT software management, search on kernel-source and select the versions tab, else via command line and;
    Code:
    zypper in kernel-source

    Also,
    Be aware that kernel source is required only for modifying the kernel itself.

    If you're building kernel modules, you only need the kernel headers, ie kernel-devel instead of kernel-source.
