I'm installing dahdi on my Fedora 15 machine and when I try to build, I receive the following error

You do not appear to have the sources for the 2.6.38.6-27.fc15.x86_64 kernel installed.

The problem is, I cannot find that kernel source anywhere! yum provides kernel-devel* gives me a couple of kernel versions older and newer than this version. Does anybody know what the repository is for this kernel? Thanks

You neither need nor want the kernel source. Install the appropriate kernel-devel package (upgrading the current kernel first if required) and try building again.

Sorry I wasn't very clear, the kernel-devel package does not seem to exist.. –  tkcsam Feb 21 '12 at 23:01
    
It's definitely in the repos. –  Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Feb 21 '12 at 23:05
    
How did you find it? yum provides kernel-devel* does not return it. Thanks –  tkcsam Feb 21 '12 at 23:09

We use list to find packages by name, rather than provides. And don't forget to escape the wildcard. –  Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Feb 21 '12 at 23:19
    
[root@asterisk ~]# yum list available 'kernel-devel' Error: No matching Packages to list –  tkcsam Feb 22 '12 at 13:13
