okay all my looking around on the normal kernel site ftp can't find it. I need specifically, the PAE version. I am compiling virtualbox and if you don't use the right source you get this lovely: vboxdrv: disagrees about version of symbol struct_module

  • There's no such thing as a PAE version of the kernel source. Judging by your earlier question, you need to compile the kernel with the right configuration (.config). Jul 23 '11 at 21:51
  • I did get the kernel to compile, but i'm getting this error: vboxnetflt: Unknown symbol consume_skb which is suggesting the wrong kernel version. I can't upgrade, so how do i make them match?

  • 2.6.18 is pretty old (yeah, I know, CentOS). Do recent versions of VirtualBox still support such old versions? The kernel source has been reorganized quite a bit since then, so it would be understandable if they'd dropped compatibility. Jul 23 '11 at 22:47

You usually don't need the "real" kernel sources for CentOS - see this wiki page.

Anyway, any kernel source should be in the .src RPM which for older versions of CentOS can be found at http://vault.centos.org/
