    Default kernel headers 2.6.25.18-0.2-pae

    after installing VMWare and trying to run it, it said that i needed gcc 3.x.x (cant remember exactly) (which i installed with Yast) and then it asked for "kernel headers 2.6.25.18-0.2-pae"
    i tried to search it with yast, but it didnt return any results, so i searched for "Kernel Modules" and found this: "linux-kernel-headers" but the check box on the left was already ticked, but i clicked it again and then there was the green arrow pointing up, so i thought 'must be an upgrade then'

    i installed the package twice with yast (didnt work after first time so i tried again) but VMware still asks for the same "kernel headers 2.6.25.18-0.2-pae"

    what do i do?

    distro: 11.0
    linux user level: noob

    Do you have the sources repository installed?
    I do and I can see the kernel-source package (this is in 11.1)

    k thanks i installed it now.

    but i still can't start: now when i try to start VMware workstation, it tells me this:
    "Before you can run VMware Workstation, several modules must be compiled and loaded into the running kernel.

    i thought it had something to do with restarting so the kernel could update, but after reboot it gave the same error.

    Theres also an "install" button which i clicked, and then it asked for my root PW, which i gave, but that doesn't do anything :S

    Hi
    Assuming you downloaded/installed the rpm, you need to run
    vmware-config.pl (as root user)

    k i didn't know where VMware was located so i looked around a bit and i found THREE config files (none of them had the .pl extension tho :S)

    1) /etc/vmware/config (troff document)
    2) /usr/lib/vmware/config (plain text document)
    3) /usr/lib/vmware/setup/vmware-config (executable file)

    i guess it must be the third one but i ask to prevent myself from causing huge damage
    or if there should be another file/location... tell me
    thanks
