Re: Kernel source doesn't match kernel?

Mike, I am referring to the live CD images available at the site. I said so in my original post. Whoever maintains this list should be able to tell me if the kernel was compiled for those images specifically, and where the actual kernel sources are.

I should add, I only had that problem with the Maverick image. I didn't try to install VMWare on the Lucid image. But I didn't like the quality of the sound of my (external) microphone on the Lucid image, it's a lot better on the Maverick image, so I was considering using Maverick.
