    Default kernel.lzm

    Where can I download kernel.lzm? I believe the one I downloaded earlier is corrupted because I get an error when I try to install/extract it. I'll explain the error when I try again later.

    This have been covered numerous times on the forum already. Download the kernel source from http://www.offensive-security.com/kernel.lzm and install using the following command:
    Code:
    lzm2dir kernel.lzm /

    I've downloaded the kernel.lzm from the above mentioned link. I have BT3 installed from the BT3 final live cd. I don't understand where should I place this kernel.lzm file and what command should I use to install it on my machine.

    you even quoted the proper command in your post.

    bt~#wget http://www.offensive-security.com/kernel.lzm
    bt~#lzm2dir kernel.lzm /

    This has been covered at least 100 times this year

    I really searched the forum - a full day - even googled it, but no satisfactory results found.
    I wanted kernel header files to compile my only silan based NIC drivers, so as of now I downloaded the kernel.lzm file in XP and after booting in BT3 and copying kernel.lzm in /tmp directory, I excetued the lzm2dir command but nothing happened and when I compile the NIC driver using
    #make
    I get Kernel header error message - mising config.h file....
    thats the real problem

    You need to do what everyone else just said - download the the kernel sources lzm, and use

    Code:
    lzm2dir kernel.lzm /
    It will extract the sources to the correct directories. I just did it so I could compile my e1000e drivers, and it worked perfectly.

    Even I did the same, but when I compile my NIC's driver, I get an error message saying missing config.h file...
    How I go about removing this error ??

    Its probably needs more than just the kernel.lzm, post the full error output.

    can you find config.h in the sources from your Nic' s driver ?

    Post the last 10/20 rules from the console output with this error.

    This is error I get when I compile my NIC's driver
    Code:
    bt ~ # cd /tmp/nic
    bt nic # make
    Makefile:38: *** Linux kernel source not configured - missing config.h.  Stop.
    bt nic #
    @rongogo - no, there was no config.h file in the NIC's driver sources..
    there are only three files..
    1) makefile
    2) sc92031.c
    3) readme.txt
