Downloading Ubutnu's kernel source (Solved again!!! by now...)

Ok, I am with serious problems. My PC has a tricky hardware that makes me need to recompile a module to have access to the Internet.

As I said above, I don't have access to the net trough Ubuntu (or any other Linux), so it's useless to try to install it trough Synaptic (I already tried).

I have been searching trough the net to see where can I download the source, but I can't find it (or I searched badly, or it is hard to find).

So, if anybody knows where i can download Ubuntu Gutsy kernel source, please comment.

Thank you in advance
PTMb

EDIT: This is now solved. As Simeon showed, we can download it here.

Thank You

EDIT2:

OK, that helped me a lot, but now I have a new problem. I identified the problem and I know how to fix it. But I don't know where to find the file for where I need to make the corrections. I already posted at Kubuntu Forums over 1 (maybe 2) weeks and still not a single answer (2nd time it happens to me, I'm disappointed with that community).

You can see my problem here: (link)

Note: don't mind if my question sounds too noobish, or if I seem to be answering to myself, I don't notice it a lot.

And that this is registered: I don't like posting off topic help request threads on the forums (even on off topic section), but sometimes I have to.

EDIT3: I managed to find where to find the sis file.

It is on .../drivers/net/sis190.c

Thank you all

(now lets see if I can compile the kernel)

Thanks

I was thinking to go to kernel.org, but I wasn't sure if the kernel would work correctly with the custom Ubuntu kernel. Anyway, thank you veeeery much!

Old problem gone, new problem up

I have a new problem, related to the previous, that I don't think that it is worth of posting on a new thread.

You can read about it above (it's about modules compiling and where to find files).

Blue is everything.

Cant help you

with this one.
I just googled it and it came up with 1 entry. Must be pretty rare Smile
but I found lots of sis190.c

Did you try Ubuntu forums (without the K)?

First place

I first searched google for the sis 191 enthernet card. But all it had was about the Ndsiswrapper (is it well written?). The, on Ubuntu Forums (in which I am not member) I found something about recompiling a module.

O know that I need to find the sis191.c file on the downloaded kernel and modify the following lines:

        isa_bridge = pci_get_device(PCI_VENDOR_ID_SI, 0x0965, NULL);
        if (!isa_bridge) {
                net_probe(tp, KERN_INFO "%s: Can not find ISA bridge.\n",
                          pci_name(pdev));
                return -EIO;
        }

The strong characters are the ones I need to change with the ones I said on kubuntu forums. Now I can't find the thread there.

But I'll create an account there.

EDIT: Still haven't created an account there, but I found the thread: (link)
