Yeah, the package name is something like: kernel-source-2.4.18-3.rpm and for the headers the same but then with kernel-headers instead of kernel-source. You only need the headers package not the full source.

The only one I have is the kernan source. I cant fine the kernel headers on the cdom.

So I hopefully installed them correctly ..

rpm -ivh kernel-source-whatever.src.rpm

correct? .. I dont want to screw this up again .. <g>

Post I'm watching this thread, please don't stop!

Ah! Please don't end this thread unanswered, I'm watching and waiting for an answer myself!

I'm in almost the same boat as The Butler, the only difference for myself is that I've updated the kernel to 2.4.18-5 for athlon(Redhat 7.3). I'm also trying to use the SRPM and get the same compile error, so I've downloaded "kernel-2.4.18-5.src.rpm" from redhat and this is where I'm at now.

I'd really like confirmation on The Butler's inquiry as to whether

rpm -ivh kernel-source-whatever.src.rpm

is the correct procedure? Since I used -Uvh when I updated my kernel, I just want to make sure I shouldn't use -Uvh for the source also. (Man, I must sound REALLY new to this, how embarrasing)

I was also unable to find a kernel-header-source, so I'm hoping that the package I downloaded will be enough. Am I correct? (Is The Butler correct?)

Should I also download anything to do with GCC (Like I saw in an earlier post), I just noticed GCC3.2 was released yesterday (though who knows if I'd actually figure out how to install it).

Thanks much.

You need to do:
rpm --rebuild rpmname.src.rpm and then the rpm will be build and placed in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386.

(make sure you have the kernel headers ....)
