    I would like to compile my own kernel from the same sources used for 2.6.31-rc9-kuki-20090919.
    The question is:
    Where can I find and download those sources?

    The 2.6.31-rc9-kuki kernel was built from the ubuntu source using git to check it (the source) out.

    If you are not trying to build a kernel that will boot from an install cd, I would suggest downloading the official 2.6.31 kernel source from

    Any Ubuntu patches that were accepted, will be included in the official kernel. However, to be able to build an actual kernel that could boot a live cd, you would either need the ubuntu source or add the aufs patch that is in the Ubuntu repository.

    Finally, the official 2.6.31 kernel has acerhdf 0.5.16. This should work fine for most users, however, since Kuki Linux is helping the developer of acerhdf to debug some issues, our kernel has 0.5.17 (you can download 0.5.17 from the acerhdf site and copy it over the acerhdf.c file in the kernel tree).

    My recommendation would be to use the source.
