RE: Why kernel source is not in Distribution that is installed

Besides that, if you:

rpm -ivh ...

and then cd /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES

you will find a linux-2.6.9.tar.bz2 and a lot of patches. So you do a tar -xjvf to the stuff and then cd linux-2.6.9 and apply the corresponding patches... after that a cp /boot/config-2.6.9-xxx .config, make gconfig, configure the stuff (hopefully just including needed modules), make bzImage && make modules && make modules_install and Bang !!! it does not compile (as in linux-2.6.9-1.667). Then you have some bit-brushing work to put things together...

In my opinion, there's no problem if kernel sources are placed in the SRPM repositories, but:

a) Why not install in /usr/src/linux-2.6.9-xxx ?
b) Why not have the patches already applied ?
c) It should compile cleanly...

I don't know what you mean by 'hijack' that is besides the point.  The
discussion that I am trying to bring up has to do with an issue that often
is comes as a complaint.  The RPM does not install the source in the correct
location from the src.rpm and quite often the first thing that is required
in a upgrade or installation is to rebuild the kernel.  The issue is one
about Fedora core by the way as stated in the question.  I wish that
responses are to the question asked and if you need a clarification state
that.  There was no reply on the response I sent.
