Thread: Kernel headers for version 3.1.9-1.4-desktop were not found (vmplayer)

    Default Kernel headers for version 3.1.9-1.4-desktop were not found (vmplayer)

    Hello,

    Using OpenSUSE 12.1 x64;

    jason@LINUX-PD:~> cat /proc/version
    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:

    libgiomm-2_4.1 (2.30.0-2.1.2)
    glibmm2-devel (2.30.0-2.1.2)
    linux-glibc-dev (3.1_rc5-7.1.1)
    kernel-source
    kernel-syms

    It could be that vmp 3 looks for them at the wrong place. If I recall
    correctly the place changed.

    > any suggestions would be great


    Code:
    su -
    cd /usr/src/linux
    make menuconfig
    make scripts
    make prepare
    then try again with vmp

    Hello


    reference pastbin link


    I have never really used MAKE before. A window popped up


    I selected Exit > Then SAVE

    I then rebooted the computer and tried vmplayer again > same error!

    was I supposed to do anything specific with MAKE?

    Thanks for your quick response

    The same error as the photos you posted about the make procedure, or the
    same error about vmware player?

    Then it must be that the files it is searching for are on a different place
    since version 3 was released. I think I heard of that, people were using
    symlinks for a time.

    He is using vmplayer version 3, I think that one expects files on different
    places than the current version 4.
