    Default Gave myself the shaft

    After denying the latest kernel update for over a month I inadvertently
    authorized it during my last update. Big mistake. My nvidia driver is now
    trashed as well as my VMware Workstation. Problem is the usual things I do
    to fix it are not working.

    nVidia driver doesn't work from the repos and when I try the manual
    installer it is complaining that my gcc is missing and I need to set the CC
    varialble. First off gcc is installed and the environment is correct so
    no idea what that's about.

    VMware workstation (7.1.4) is also failing to compile.

    Any help with either issue is appreciated. I've exhausted all the cuurent
    online tips so I need some serious help with troubleshooting what is wrong.

    I am operating in safe mode at the moment to access the internet.

    Could you post output of:
    Code:
    rpm -qa | grep kernel-
    Easiest way to see that everything needed for building kernel-modules is to install the Linux Kernel Development pattern
    - Athlon X6 3.6 GHz, 16 GB DDR3, 30 GB SSD, 3 TB of disks, GT540, openSUSE 12.2 x86_64 + KDE 4.10 + GNOME 3
    - ASUS A73SD, Intel + GT610M Optimus, 6 GB, 120 GB SSD, openSUSE Tumbleweed

    Anything that can go wrong.... will teach us

    Hi
    There are forum posts for 7.1.4;
    http://search.opensuse.org/forums/ and use "vmware"+"7.1.4" as the
    search criteria.

    Unfortunatley I have gone through all of those posts and none of them
    A) Solve my issue B) Match what I am seeing. It appears there may be
    something wrong with my build evironment as I cannot compile the nVidia
    driver either.
