Missing kernel-headers in RH9
I have been working through the problems on my nforce2 motherboard and I am slowly getting somewhere.

Next on my list is getting the full speed from my hard drive.

According to all info on inet I need to patch and recompile the kernel. Ok, for a newbie that's fairly scary but there is plenty of info around.

Unfortunately everything I read about this process requires that I have the kernel-headers installed.

I have checked rpms on the system and on the 3 RH9 cds and they don't seem to be there. I have done a 'find' with no luck.

Am I looking in the wrong place or are they missing?

I am running RH9 2.4.20-8.

If using the latest NForce drivers (v256) I believe, NVidia reports that the ide, usb, modem drivers are included with redhat 9.0 and not in the latest driver release.

I have also seen on some posts that you need to set some parameters up for the drives to get ata mode out of them

The Redhat kernel headers are in a package named:

kernel-source-<version stuff here>.rpm

I've got them now.

They seem to have been installed but there was no trace of a kernel-headers rpm.

I went on to try and patch the kernel and I get lots of failed messages and do I want to reverse the patch?

It seems that the 2.4.20-8 kernel that RH9 provides is a mixture of 2.4.20 and 2.4.21.

I am going to put up another post re kernel versions etc.
