Linux version 3.1.9-1.4-desktop (geeko@buildhost) (gcc version 4.6.2 (SUSE Linux) ) #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri Jan 27 08:55:10 UTC 2012 (efb5ff4)
I cannot run the latest greatest vmware player series > 4.0 because my microprocessor is missing some features: Release notes say Vmplayer4.0.2 must have LAHF/SAHF support.... this didnt come about in the pentium D 820.... created in 2 quarter 2005, but that support didnt get introduced by intel until 12/2005 ….so I decided to use the same vmware version (VMware-Player-3.0.0-203739.x86_64.bundle) as my prior install ( I wiped a Opensuse 11.2 installation (copied the vmplayer xp image) > then installed a fresh new version of Opensuse 12.1)
when I try to start vmplayer I get the following error (shortened) "Kernel headers for version 3.1.9-1.4-desktop were not found"....
I have ensured the following:
YaST->Software->Software Management, select the 'View' tab (defaults to search). If you select patterns and scroll down the list there is a pattern called 'Base Development', and 'Linux kernel Development' select those and install
also from some posts that I have read the following are also installed:
