i've come to the point where the nvidiadrivers can be installed.( kernel =
When searching in this forum i found the same question. I understand i need
the source of this kernel

              <pre wrap="">Hi Joe. The URL to be added to /etc/apt/sources.list  is.
<a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="http://ccrma.stanford.edu/planetccrma/mirror/all/linux/SRPMS/">http://ccrma.stanford.edu/planetccrma/mirror/all/linux/SRPMS/</a>
            <pre wrap="">so i entered this URL in /etc/apt/sources.list and ran Synaptic. There was
an error:
Type '<a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="http://ccrma.stanford.edu/planetccrma/mirror/all/linux/SRPMS/">http://ccrma.stanford.edu/planetccrma/mirror/all/linux/SRPMS/</a>' is not
known in on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list

How should i proceed? My goal is to get twinview running.
          <pre wrap="">First thing to try is to install the kernel-devel package that matches
the kernel you have installed, that would be:

  apt-get install kernel-smp-devel#2.6.14-0.10.rrt.rhfc4.ccrma

That should be enough for the Nvidia installer. But I'm not sure how
well those drivers work with the realtime preemption enabled kernels. 

        <pre wrap="">I need to install the source for 2.6.12-0.21.rdt.rhfc3.ccrma and I
don't see the source nor the devel packages using yum. I see lots of
alsa modules! But no devel nor source. Why would that be? And, how can
I get them?
What could I be doing wrong?
      <pre wrap="">Nothing, that kernel predates the time when -devel packages started to
be built. For that kernel the kernel headers should be
in /lib/modules/`unamne -r`/build/, perhaps the nvidia drivers can be
convinced to look there. Otherwise you have to manually download the
source rpm (.src.rpm) for that kernel and build a patched source tree -
instructions for that are available in the fc4 release notes...
    <pre wrap="">Thanks, but I'm not doing anything with nvidia -- I just hijacked this
thread because it was relevant!

I'm running fc3

I already looked in that dir and the headers were in there, but that's
all that's there. I needed the source.

But.... Before I sent this msg, I manually downloaded the src rpm and
installed but still I don't see any source in that directory. I
couldn't find another directory that the rpm  would have installed to.
Do you know where can I look?
  <pre wrap=""><!---->
A .src.rpm... long story... you need to do part of the build process for
packages to get a complete tree (hint, you get stuff unpacked
in /usr/src/redhat/*). 

See this:
<a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/3/i386/os/RELEASE-NOTES-en.html">http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/3/i386/os/RELEASE-NOTES-en.html</a>

and follow instructions in the "kernel" section of the packages. 
oh boy... can't wait.<br>
Actually, it sounds like it would be best to upgrade the kernel. Ok, so
is there a newer kernel from ccrma for FC3?<br>
I didn't see any and I asked this question a couple of times before and
it was the latest at that time. <br>
What say you? Should I just install a new kernel?<br>
