Default Re: kernel-source-*.rpm doesn't install

Originally posted by morian97

couldn't resist, find a rpm and just checked
1) rpm -qa | grep kernel-source
nothing prints in shell

2) if I install a file:
..root]# rpm -i kernel-source-2.4.18-7.80.i386.rpm
nothing prints in shell, it just goes to another line without complain:
-Uvh or --force don't change anything...
if I rpm -e kernel-source-2.4.18-7.80
shell prints me that it is not installed
rpm -qa | grep kernel-source
nothing prints on screen...just #
I don't understand why the kernel source file doesn't install...

Better install sources from your CD's before installing others.

rpm -qa | grep kernel-source
/home/uti# rpm -qa | grep kernel-source
If you want to remove it, you have to do:
rpm -e kernel-source
NOT rpm -e kernel-source-2.4.7....

if no prints nothing, install it from 2nd CD.

rpm -i kernel-source*
and check for dependencies... perhaps need to install something more.

Ahh, if kernel-source is installed , rpm -i can NOT install
rpm -U can NOT install if is the same package

if all is ok, rpm -i does say nothing

Check /usr/src directory
/usr/src/linux need to point to /usr/src/linux-2.4
and /usr/src/linux-2.4 to your current source /usr/src/linux-2.4.etc.etc
