    Question how to add the core source repo to the list of repo ?

    I am trying to install the kernel source. However, the core source repo is not
    in my list of repos on my system as shown below

    ls /etc/yum.repos.d/
    fedora-core.repo fedora-extras-development.repo fedora-legacy.repo fedora-updates-testing.repo livna-devel.repo livna-testing.repo
    fedora-development.repo fedora-extras.repo fedora-updates.repo freshrpms.repo livna.repo


    how to add the core source repo to the list of repo ?

    I download the kernel source manually for the installation of nvidia driver.

    however,
    rpm -ihv kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.src.rpm
    1:kernel warning: user brewbuilder does not exist - using root
    warning: group brewbuilder does not exist - using root
    warning: user brewbuilder does not exist - using root
    warning: group brewbuilder does not exist - using root
    warning: user brewbuilder does not exist - using root

    The kernel source is not installed after this and
    the nvidia can not find the kernel source.

    Building driver modules like the nvidia one requires the kernel-devel package, not the kernel-*.src.rpm. "yum install kernel-devel" is the command you need.
