Hi guys,

I have BLAG 10k on a laptop and I'd like to see the "light". What is the method for downloading the source code? Is it something like..

`apt-get install source kernel Linux-2.4.-xxx` Where xx is the build number?

Thanks

One of the RedHat guys changed the name to the kernel source package mid-stream. I think it had the same name since, oh, 1995 or so. The change was unannounced--it just appeared during an update. Anyway, he thought it would be real smart to change it, and since it's a community he got his way despite everyone loudly complaining.

Anyway, the files you are looking for are named either kernel-source or kernel-sourcecode.

These are i386 rpms--e.g. kernel-sourcecode-2.6.6-1.435.2.3.noarch.rpm (this for blag2k).

The kernel is a bit of an anomoly in this case. Most source code is in .src.rpm form. E.g.:
streamtuner-0.12.3-1.rhfc2.nr.src.rpm

For source, you want the .src.rpm package. They are in the SRPMS directory on the ftp site . For 10000:
ftp://ftp.blagblagblag.org/pub/BLAG/linux/10000/en/os/i386/SRPMS/

I don't have the SRPMS apt-gettable at this point.

Code:
apt-get update

apt-get install rpm-build

cd /usr/src/redhat/SRPMS/

wget \ ftp://ftp.blagblagblag.org/pub/BLAG/linux/10000/en/os/i386/SRPMS/streamtuner-0.11.1-10blag.fc1.src.rpm

rpm -Uvh streamtuner-0.11.1-10blag.fc1.src.rpm

cd /usr/src/redhat/SPECS

vi streamtuner.spec   (change "blag" to your build name)

rpmbuild -bb streamtuner.spec   ("build binary")

rpmbuild -bs streamtuner.spec   ("build source" / SRPM)

ls /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/streamtuner-0.11.1

ls /usr/src/redhat/SRPMS

ls /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386

Thanks jeb. I installed it via synaptic. Under "Development/System". I selected the first source code entry and i was away! takes about 10 mins to d-load 200 mb over a broadband connection :lol:
