Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 180772
vmware-server can't use the kernel sources
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:23 EST
Description of problem:
The kernel-devel package doesn't seem to match the kernel. See below.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install VMware-server-e.x.p-20925
2. symlink /usr/src/kernels/2.6.15-1.1917_FC5-smp-i686 to /usr/src/linux
3. run vmware-config.pl
4. Notice how it doesn't like the kernel sources, saying "The kernel defined by this directory of header
files does not have the same address space size as your running kernel."
Expected vmware-config to like what it saw.
This might very well be a vmware bug. If so then at least I've made life easier for the next Fedora user
to encounter this when you tell me so. :-)
