What is needed to get the kernel source? I have jumped through
numerous hoops, from deciphering cryptic bitmap images, cutting and
pasting security codes, email validation, ssh key generation, sign up
for the team, enter password and still
bzr: ERROR: Permission denied: "/dev/2.6-stable/": [Errno 13]
Permission denied: '/dev/2.6-stable/'
Umm.. do you really want to write to "/dev/"
It's not exactly the best place to be writing random files..
Put it somewhere in your home directory..
whoops. asleep at the wheel. Thank you sudo
You really shouldn't even be downloading/compiling the kernel as
root. Sudo is to be used sparingly. Put the tree in your home directory
and compile as an unprivileged user.
I agree with Ben. Never do any work as root. Use root or sudo only to install software or to do bonafide administration tasks like adding users.
I do all my own work as a standard user (also known as "unprivileged user", but I like the term "standard" better because it suggests you can still do significant amounts of work.)
