Thread: kernel sources package has no makefiles

  1. #1

    Default kernel sources package has no makefiles

    When I used Yast to get the kernel sources, the update
    got linux-4.4.120-45 with lots of sources, but no makefiles!
    This worked fine last time I did it, maybe the RPMs for this
    update got built without the makefiles? Or I'm doing something wrong,
    please let me know!

    I downloaded kernel-source rpms by hand and opened them in ark, they contain
    no makefiles.

    kernel-*-devel packages?

    If you mean SRPM files (.src.rpm) these are for rebuilding RPM files with the “rpmbuild” command. There are lots of on-line tutorials for building packages with the RPM tools.

    They have (almost) nothing to do with using the Gnu C compiler tools with the .tgz archives that come from e.g. kernel.org, sourceforge, github.
