    Unhappy kernel sources for vmware

    i installed the vmware in open suse10.3 today.when i started the vmware in terminal,the system showed the error:c header files matching your running kernel were not found.Refer to you distribution's documentation for installation instructions.i pressed the enter,another windows shows that:the kernel headers for version 2.6.22.18-0.2-default were not found.how can i do?I am a Chinese,not good at English.

    * tallguy,

    install the package linux-kernel-headers or the kernel sources through Yast. You'll also need "make" and "gcc".

    Hi Tallguy,

    Go in to YaST > Software Management, search for & install ;
    kernel-sources
    gcc
    gcc++
    make

    After having installed this open a terminal, switch to root with ' su - ' and re-run ' vmware-config.pl '

    That should set things straight.

    Cheers,
    Wj
    Have a lot of fun!

    Is the kernel-sources in the DVD?I can't find the RMP.I had installed the kernel-default and kernel-header.

    No you do not need linux-kernel-headers for vmware.

    Hi, thx, I had the same problem, SUSE 10.3 64bit, VMware workstation 6.5 new install.

    I had linux-kernel-headers installed at the correct level but VMware config failed as per this form post, so seems you need source rpm

    I Installed Linux-source rpm then all ok (not linux-sources !)


    Cheers
