I've installed 2.6.8-2-386 in Sid by 'apt-get install

Normally I don't put 'deb-src' in my sources.list, but I
have now done so for 'unstable main' which is where I think
it would be, and apt-get updated. 'apt-cache' doesn't help.

In googling, I keep getting reference to 2.6.8-15, but as
2.6.8-2 was available as a package for installation, I
thought the source code would there too.

Any help or clarification, please.         John.

apt-get install kernel-source-2.6.8

I don't understand how this will provide the source relating
to my version of the kernel. If I look at kernel.org there are
tarballs for 2.6.8.-1, 2.6.8-2, 2.6.8-3 etc, also I presume
kernel-source-2.6.8 will cover all architectures and not just

Please don't think I'm suggesting the advice is incorrect, it's
just that I genuinely cannot understand.		John.
