Fedora 11 Source

I am running Fedora 11 and trying to get back into the OS. Anyway, I am trying to compile a Kernel Device Driver module and it requires the Kernel source to be avaialbe. I have tried numerous searches, etc but can't seem to find an archive for the source. Can someone point me in the right direction? It would be most appreciated.

install package `kernel-source'

- first, install the package named "kernel-source" ;

- the kernel source will then be found under "/usr/src" ;

good luck, and success !

Thank you for the response. I tried 'yum install kernel-source' and recevied no package kernel-source availalble. Is there another method, can you be more specific? Most appreciated.

yum install kernel-devel$(uname -r) instead.
if it is unable to find one for you kernel, then you may need to update the kernel first.
