None RPM's versus SRPM's 

Forum: PCMCIA Installation and Configuration Issues
Re: Question Kernel source tree from RPMs (Peter Townsend)
Date: 1999, Nov 29
From: David Hinds <>

You want to install the kernel-source RPM, not Red Hat's SRPM for the
kernel.  That's somewhat nonintuitive... the kernel-source RPM puts
the plain kernel source tree in /usr/src/linux, but an SRPM is a
special thing just for creating RPM's, and it puts the kernel source
tree (plus various other things) in unusual places.
