    Hi there, IF you have the latest release for openSuSE 11.3 then... Start up Yast, Go to Software Management, In the Search Tab type kernel, examine the results and check 'kernel-source' and 'kernel-syms' and then click on Accept at the bottom. I too use VMware and the Headers are now there and available ... IN THE LATEST RELEASE. Had trouble with the earlier ones so IF you have one of those you too will have trouble.
    Take care and have fun ... love that VMware.

    I did all that, but when I bash vmware-config.pl there is a problem when it comes to accessing the file headers. They were not in the expected directory:
    What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
    kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]

    Now I am not sure what to try next.

    Hmmm, as I said, I had this problem with the Beta versions of 11.3. Make sure that you have both the 'kernel-source' AND the 'kernel-syms' installed... re-check ... even IF you think you have. At the question above ... just hit the Enter key cause that is the correct dir.

    Why would you have trouble? The kernel source package has always been available as an rpm in the
    same place as the kernel itself, for as many years back as I can remember.

    However, even if the headers are there, they don't by default match the running kernel till you
    configure them (cloneconfig and prepare at least).

    Yes I have both installed (and have rebooted)
    If I press enter, the question just comes up again.

    Another bit of info:
    The path "/usr/src/linux/include" is a kernel header file directory, but it
    does not contain the file "linux/version.h" as expected. This can happen if
    the kernel has never been built, or if you have invoked the "make mrproper"
    command in your kernel directory. In any case, you may want to rebuild your
    kernel.

    I have looked at the include folder, and version.h does not exist among all the other .h files. So it must have been renamed.
    Can anyone shed some light?

    Alastairo,
    Ok Carlos reminded me of a problem. For some reason version.h isn't created UNTIL you do some of the preliminaries to a kernel compile. And they are:
    1. cd /usr/src/linux
    2. make cloneconfig
    3. make prepare
    4. make modules
    You may not have to do the modules part but you do need to do the first 3. I think the modules part was only need when I was working with version 5.5.x of VMware. Anywho, I believe that version.h is created in 'make prepare'. IF you have to compile the modules, be prepared for a long haul. It takes forever on my machine and I have a fast PC. (over an hour)

    I have tried the above steps but no success.

    it just works fine in 11.2 , 11.1 . Something must have been screwed/changed in 11.3.
