    Angry Unable to install vmware server on opensuse 11.2

    I could not install vmware server (VMware-server-2.0.0-116503.i386.rpm) on opensuse 11.2

    when calling vmware-config.pl, the installer could not find (/usr/src/linux/include). I've already installed all prerequesties (kernel sources, gcc, make, ...), i even invoked "make mrproper" command in kernel folder (/usr/src/linux) but all tries where vain.

    Here is the output :
    Code:
    # vmware-config.pl
    Making sure services for VMware Server are stopped.

    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] yes
    
    Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override.
    
    Your kernel was built with "gcc" version "4.4.1", while you are trying to use
    "/usr/bin/gcc" version "4.4". 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 "4.4" anyway? [no] yes
    
    What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
    kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]
    
    The path "/usr/src/linux/include" is a kernel header file directory, but it
    does not contain the file "linux/version.h" as expected.  This can happen if
    the kernel has never been built, or if you have invoked the "make mrproper"
    command in your kernel directory.  In any case, you may want to rebuild your
    kernel.

    This very same version used to work perfectly on opensuse 11.1
    Any idea is welcome.

    I think that the problem is with VMware inc, not openSUSE. The current version vmware-server-2.0.2 supports only to Linux kernel 2.6.27 -- and we're currently using 2.6.31.
