RE: Kernel source missing?
Ah! Did a
% tar -ztvf | grep ./sys/
and found that (apparently) the kernel source is in the BIG tarball
for the entire distro. I just did a
% mount /dev/cd0a /mnt
% cd /mnt
% mkdir -p /usr/src/sys
% tar -zxf src.tar.gz -C /usr/src/ ./sys/*
which seems to be nicely pulling only the kernel stuff out. I'll
post back if I have any problems with this method. There were
some complaints about not being able to do something with modification
times, but otherwise all *seems* ok. I'll be building my first kernel
in short order. Hopefully.
I'm not familiar with a "union mount". Can you elaborate?

There is a file on the root of the cd called src.tar.gz You must tar xzvf
I would also suggest making a union mount so that it is excessible to you in
A great site with these steps as well is www.openlysecure.org , great

I *cannot* locate the kernel source tarball on the 2.8 CDROMs for
any platform (I'm using i386). According to the docs I've found there's
supposed to be a tarball srcsys.tar.gz on one or both of the cd's but
I cannot find them, so I am assuming they're not there.
Am I blind? :)
