Cannot find rpm for Kernel 2.6.8-1.610 Source

Just installed FC3 Test 3 and ran up2date to install new kernel, 2.6.8-1.610. Well thats nice and working, but I need to compile nvidia drivers, says I do not have correct source. I cannot find anywhere on the update servers the Sourcecode RPM for 610. I ran 'yum install kernel-sourcecode' and get the message, 'yum install kernel-sourcecode'. So no source available? Running 'apt-get install kernel-sourcecode' gives me a list of kernel source up to only 2.6.8-1.521. Does this source exist?

-- Thanks

For development kernels, it seems that RedHat doesn't always release the kernel-sourcecode RPM. I was running development kernels on FC2 for quite some time since it fixed cd burning for me. Unfortunately, the only suggestion I have is to try to rebuild the kernel source RPM and see if that builds the kernel-sourcecode RPM for you or go back to an earlier kernel version.

Post Location of Kernel Source

Kernel Source : SRC

Kernel Krazy..
(Remember, this HowTO is a guide and may not work for everyone.. Corrections are always welcomed!)

Here's my little HowTO on re-compiling the Kernel...

1) Download the file kernel-2.6.9-x.xxxx.src.rpm [LINK Here]
2) Open up a terminal and cd to where you have downloaded the rpm.
3) Issue the command rpm -i -vv kernel-2.6.9-x.xxx.src.rpm (the -vv option gives lots of information of what rpm is doing)
4) cd into /usr/src/redhat/SPECS
5) Issue the command rpmbuild -bp -vv --target=ixxx kernel-2.6.spec (Display the ARCH by using the command uname -a)
6) Next go into /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/kernel-2.6.9/linux-2.6.9
7) Once there, issue the command make mrproper to remove any old modules
8) Then issue the command make xconfig to customize your Kernel
9) SAVE your customization and issue the command make modules (which will take sometime to complete)
10) After completion, issue the command make modules_install install
11) The final command is make bzImage, that should install the Kernel, reboot to make sure it is working.

** You can always boot with the old Kernel if the NEW doesn't work .
