heh. Have you installed the kernel-source package yet? It'll put the
source in /usr/src/kernel-source-2.0.34 and make a link to it named
linux. Here's what my /usr/src/ looks like:
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 1024 Feb 6 22:38
drwxr-xr-x 15 root root 1024 Feb 9 09:28
drwxr-xr-x 15 1046 1046 1024 Feb 11 22:37
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root src 20 Feb 9 18:00 linux ->
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root src 21 Feb 6 22:48 linux-2.0.32 ->
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root src 20 Feb 9 09:12 linux-2.0.34 ->
-rw-r--r-- 1 root src 7269221 Feb 9 17:56
You might have to make your window a little bigger to see it nicely.
I started off by installing the kernel-source-2.0.34 package via dselect
and it stuck everything in there. To upgrade, download the kernel
sources from somewhere like www.kernel.org. Copy it into /usr/src.
remove the link called 'linux', untar and unzip the source. It installs
it into a directory called linux. change the name to
kernel-sources-2.0.36 (or whatever, according to which sources you got).
make a new link called linux that points to kernel-sources-2.0.36. cd to
linux (which will put you in the kernel-source-2.0.36 directory). type
make config (or menuconfig, or xconfig, I like xconfig). Follow my
directions from the earlier post and that should do it for you.
