VMware 2.0.3 has problems installing because it needs to recompile its
kernel modules but can't locate the problem files. The kernel-headers and
kernel-source RPMS are installed. Pointing to /usr/src/linux/include
doesn't work because the /usr/src/linux symlink isn't present;  pointing to
/usr/src/linux-2.4/include doesn't work due to a missing autoconf header
files; and pointing to /usr/include doesn't causes errors during

This all may be a VMware issue but Aaron Brown asked that I bugzilla it
Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2001-02-22 10:50:10 EST
You need to install kernel headers
and vmware should look at "/lib/modules/`uname -r/build/include", which
is the official "find me my kernel headers" for a long time now.
Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 2001-02-22 10:57:35 EST
Oops, that should be "/lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/include"
