RE: Kernel source missing?
but it means that for newer people doing the install, there is only the 2.8
directory, the src_tar.gz file and the standard readmes. . .and not the
directory structure. . .as opposed to what i got with the 2.7 cd. . .
it's just a dumb hurdle. . .
so no union mount to get the kernel files, etc. . .

it's in there. I'm pretty sure I had to do that.
