Thumbs down Yum Srpms

Hi everyone,
I am a regular visitor to this forum and I find it a fantastic resource to all sorts of problems and advice.However,I been trying to download the source-coed for my kernel(2.6.10-1.760_FC3) using yum and up2date.When I try the command "yum install kernel-source" it reports back it hasnothing to do. I also tried "up2date --get-souce kernel" but I feel it doesn't download it correctly,(I see the hash marks move too fast so i'm sure it hasn't downloaded the entire rpm because I know it is 39mb in size).

I have the latest yum.conf in /etc/ from http://fedorafaq.org and would be very grateful if someone can tell me a baseurl to use (e.g livna,redhat,etc) so I can edit my yum.conf and put it in to point it to the source rpms.

for as far as i know, a source code for kernel in FC3 is no longer needed, nor available.

Linux box 1= sempron 3000+, 1Gb mem, 60Gb hd, 128Mb nvidia, FC5
linux box 2 = Pentium 4 2.0Ghz, 768Mb mem, 80GB hd, 256Mb ati, 2003 server

Hi Evert,
I know the source rpm does exsit,I have found it at http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...dates/3/SRPMS/

The reason why I want it is because I want to use the latest A.T.I. drivers for my graphics card.
I have read the A.T.I. website and it recommends that you must have the kernel source installed.
I have looked at the Livna unstable repository,but they haven't updated their rpms to the latest drivers (I'm not sure when they are going to either).

I could do a "yum install ati-fglrx kernel-module-fglrx-`(uname -r)` " but I know that yum will point to the old ones and I know I will run into problems

I just need some guidance on howto add the SRPMS repo's

Steve, here's a link to installing it: http://fedoraforum.org/forum/showthr...nstall+src+rpm
Here's also a bunch of different locations for it: http://www.google.com/search?q=2.6.1...en-US:official

I'll contradict my own advice to 100 other people and say that this time, skip Yum and just use the RPM install as described in the link.
