Default Re: Help a newbie to Linux install shell script !!!

Only if one of those RPM's match YOUR kernel and distribution, then you can install it (type "uname -r" without quotes to see your version).

Otherwise install matching kernel sources. "uname -r" shows your kernel version, you can install the sources maybe from the CD of your distribution (you didn't mention it?) or by downloading them from the internet. Try "kernel" search to http://rpm.pbone.net and download the sources that match your kernel and distribution.

If you think you have the kernel sources already installed, try "ls /usr/src". The sources should be there and the link "linux" pointing to the source folder.
