Default Which is the Real Karmic kernel source code>

Greetings,


*


I’m having a terrible time trying to make a tiny
change in a device driver (ftdi_sio) because I can’t find the source code
for Ubuntu 9.10. I hope you can steer me to it with little trouble.


*


I don’t find packages in the form of
linux-ubuntu-modules-$(uname –r) and can only find 2 candidates - *linux-source-2.6.31
which synaptic’s package manager says has the latest version of
2.6.31-14.48, *and linux-ec2-soucre-2.6.31 (latest version of
2.6.31-302.7), but when I build them and attempt to insmod ftdi_sio.ko, I get an
error ‘unknown symbol’.


*


I’ve downloaded from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/9.10/release/source/


*


Linux-source-2.6.31.tar and applied the patch linux-2.6.31-14.48.diff.gz
but get the same ‘unknown symbol’ error.


*


Could someone be kind and give me a hint where the official Ubuntu
repository for Karmic might be?


*


I’d appreciate it!


*


Jay

Hi William,

either use git and clone from git://kernel.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ubuntu-karmic.git
or say "apt-get source linux-image-2.6.31-14-generic" to get the package source.
