Description Tom Horsley 2006-03-08 18:20:41 EST
The FC5t3 release notes contain this command line example as the way to
download the current kernel source:

   yum install yum-utilsyumdownloader --source kernel

yum don't know what it means, I don't know what it means, and I can't
figure any way to tweak it to mean something.
Comment 1 Karsten Wade 2006-03-08 18:32:10 EST
Thanks, this bug was fixed for the FC5 final notes.  We had some problems with
the output XML from the Wiki concatenating lines of commands together.

From:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Docs/Beats/Kernel

That now reads:

su -c 'yum install yum-utils'
su -c 'yumdownloader --source kernel'

That is, use yum to install yum-utils, which includes yumdownloader.  Use
yumdownloader to get the kernel source.  Do all this using su -c, asking su to
run a command as the super user (root).
