I am running CentOS 5.3 under xen on a VPS machine (so I have a limited control on the machine)
I am playing with openswan and KLIPS and I need to build the ipsec.ko kernel module.
I would need to download kernel source but I am really confused about what source I have to get.
uname -r tells:
ls /lib/modules tells:
2.6.18-128.7.1.el5xen 2.6.18-164.2.1.el5 2.6.18-164.6.1.el5 2.6.18-53.1.13.el5xen
I have no sources in /usr/src/kernels
Is there a source code named "2.6.18-128.7.1.el5xen" which I can download or should I install kernel-devel source using yum?
If I used yum I would download 18.104.22.168...
yum info kernel-devel
