Default Finding the source for a NIC driver.

One of the NIC drivers is named pegasus.

pc:/home/p# find /lib -type f -name '*pegasus*' -print
/lib/modules/2.6.24-1-686/kernel/drivers/net/usb/pegasus.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.30-2-686/kernel/drivers/net/usb/pegasus.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.26-2-686/kernel/drivers/net/usb/pegasus.ko
pc:/home/p#

The source might be in one of the packages
listed on this page; but which?
http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/kernel/

How can the package containing the source
for a specific driver be found?

Thanks, ... Peter E.

Default Finding the source for a NIC driver.

The source of your NIC driver should be in all kernel sources for each of the kernel that is installed on your system. Does that help?
Type:

# uname -r

and see what kernel are you running and then check the source of the corresponding kernel?
