7.5. Following Generic Textbooks

Many of the tutorials, examples, and textbooks about Linux kernel development assume the kernel sources are installed under the /usr/src/linux/ directory. If you make a symbolic link, as shown below, you should be able to use those learning materials with the Fedora Core packages. Install the appropriate kernel sources, as shown earlier, and then run the following command:
su -c 'ln -s /usr/src/kernels/<version>.<release>-<arch> /usr/src/linux'
Enter the root password when prompted.
