    Default gcc problem whilst installing vmware server 1.0.7

    I'm trying to complete a problem-less install of vmware server according to this article on the opensuse wiki:
    Setting up VMware on SUSE Linux - openSUSE
    So all the pre reqs are installed and fine, dled the rpm and used yast to install it fine, then dled any any patch and ran the all fine, then starts automatically and first few questions are no prob until the gcc compile starts. I get this prompt after accepting to compile with gcc:
    None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Server is suitable for your 
    running kernel.  Do you want this program to try to build the vmmon module for 
    your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)? [yes] 
    Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override.
    Your kernel was built with "gcc" version "4.3.1", while you are trying to use 
    "/usr/bin/gcc" version "4.3". This configuration is not recommended and VMware 
    Server may crash if you'll continue. Please try to use exactly same compiler as
    one used for building your kernel. Do you want to go with compiler 
    "/usr/bin/gcc" version "4.3" anyway? [no] yes
    At which point it doesn't matter if I write yes or no, the execution ends up aborted.
    Now I've tried checking if in fact my gcc version isn't up to par, it is 4.3-39.1 which sort of looks like v4.3.1 (excuse the lack of knowledge). I'm at a wall I can't seem to climb, any help truely appreciated (btw version I have of gcc is most current in opensuse software package).

    PS the opensuse is 11, newest, dled and installed in the past day.
