PostPosted: Tue 27 Dec 2011, 12:16    Post_subject: looking for source  

Since I have a netbook with a rtl8188 wifi chip
I have had to often compile the modules.
(for magea and salix)
This needs a link /lib/modules/(version)/build which points to /usr/src/linux(version)
Where is source for Slacko, 2.6.37.6?
(my salix is smp, have already tried and failed)

"static and dynamic links" -what you mean is link*ing*.
Linking statically means that the linked library is included in its' entirety in your final binary. dynamic linking means your final binary will look for the shared(dynamic) links at runtime. Actually it is ld-linux.so which looks for and loads the shared libs before runnign your program, but that is another story.

Using static libs means you get a larger binary, but (usually) shorter load time. If the needed libs are already present on your system as shared libraries, it makes little sense (usually) to include them redundantly in your binary. If you did that for every program and library then you'd have hundreds of copies of glibs and other libs on your system -nearly everything uses glibc.

Err what I meant is a soft link, ln -s /lib/.../build /usr/src/linux...
Or else the make fails, complains that there is no build
What it finds in /usr/src I don't know, but the make completes.
and I have a rlt8192ce.ko and a rtlwifi.ko and the fireware
that make install will put into the right place.
And then the Realtek 8188ce wifi chip will work

For convenience link to kernel source is in Slickpet>sfs tab.

It downloads and installs, full or frugal. This was done to alleviate searching for source.

Only the correct source for your kernel is downloaded, because Slacko ships with a choice of kernels.
