VMware 2.0.3 install issues
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:31:39 EDT
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
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.
Oops, that should be "/lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/include"
