    Hi,

    I have installed CentOS (www.centos.org) on My PC.

    It is said to be same as RHEL, compiled from source.

    My network card is not working, i try to install the driver for LAN card from the monther board CD.

    I got the error

    Code:
    #make
    
    Makefile:29 *** Linux kernel source not found.  Stop. 
    

    My LAN Card is

    Ethernet Controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6105 [Rhline - III] (rev 86)

    It seems i don't have kernel source installed on my pc.

    How do i get it ?

    I checked the CentOS CD, CD1 have no RPM called kernel-source.

    How do i solve this ? Can i download a kernel from kernel.org and install it ?

    Regards,

    Yujin

    The best solution is dl the latest kernel from kernel.org. But to get it running will require a bit of effort. About the source, all the releases not necessarily have the source code.

    Yup you need source code from kernel.org OR you can get it from your distros ftp/http server. Compiling kernel is not at all hard.
