kernel references in /lib/modules/2.6.23.17-88.fc7 missing

I am trying to reinstall VPN which references the kernel source in /lib/modules/2.6.23.17-88.fc7,
however the pointers "build-> /usr/src/kernels/2.6.23.17-88.fc7-i686", and "source->build" are invalid,
as there is no kernel source for this kernel version (2.6.23) located in /usr/src/kernels. Previous versions do have versions there. What is the purpose of these kernel locations, and how do I get my 2.6.23 version in the /usr/src/kernels location so I can reinstall VPN. I tried putting a symlink in /usr/src/kernels pointing to /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/kernel-2.6.23/linux-2.6.23.i686, but VPN install did not like that version, saying the kernel config was invalid,

ERROR: Kernel configuration is invalid.
include/linux/autoconf.h or include/config/auto.conf are missing.
Run 'make oldconfig && make prepare' on kernel src to fix it.


WARNING: Symbol version dump /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/kernel-2.6.23/linux-2.6.23.i686/Module.symvers
is missing; modules will have no dependencies and modversions.

so my symlink was obviously not a fix. How do I create a kernel directory in /usr/src/kernels ?

Hello:

You need the matching kernel-devel rpm installed.

With any luck you can find one here (Since FC7 is no longer supported) :

Thanks for the suggestion

I thought it was something like that, but I could not find the DEVEl kernel for my version.
After your reply I searched and did find it eventually. I was able to get VPN back up and running. Alls is well.

Thanks again.
