Abstract: We give an explicit construction for the kernel of an arbitrary generalized resolvent for an ordinary symmetric differential operator. In particular, this avoids the use of approximation of selfadjoint operators on compact intervals. We also discuss integrability of functions which are adjoint to certain fundamental solutions.
