Thread: cannot find Linux-kernel-headers 2.6.31.5-0.1-default

  1. #1

    Question cannot find Linux-kernel-headers 2.6.31.5-0.1-default

    I'm new to opensuse (11.2 just installed from a download dvd).
    Can someone please tell me in which repository I can find
    linux-kernel-headers 2.6.31.5-0.1-default

    when I run Yast i only get Linux-kernel-headers 2.6.31-3.4 which is incompatible with my running kernel 2.6.31.5-0.1

    thanks for any help
    greetings from Saigon

    They're the right headers, install them - only the major version matters.

    I have tried that sir, but vmware keeps on coming back with that it needs 2.6.31.-01 headers, i even recompiled my kernel and reboot the system...
    Its a pity i still need vmware because of plc programming software what i cant get running under wine....

    Recompiled your kernel? No no, that would definitely break things.

    First, remove your recompiled kernel and install the SuSE defaults and kernel-source + linux-kernel-headers.

    Then tell me what VMWare you are trying to install?

    You may need the kernel-devel package that matches your kernel flavour
    Leap 15.1_KDE

    I simply use need to use vmware player2.52, here in Vietnam we can't afford expensive software as our average income is only 100usd / month
    PLC programming software mostly uses special assembly written drivers (at least what i use does) and that is not working with wine, crashes all the time. so vmware player is a simple solution what works well.

    My previous distro was kubuntu 9.10 but it gave too many issues, so i thought ,lets try opensuse with kde too . I'm self a bit surprised about all the differences between the 2 distro's, both kde 4 but I'm happy to have Opensuse working.

    By the way ,the recompiling of the kernel was no issue, no broken packages

    I wondered a bit why gcc is not standard installed... but those kind of things are easy solved...

    hmm maybe a bit off topic, but what is the first serial port(the good old rs232,non usb) in opensuse, i'm used to use serial0(zero) but now its not listed anymore and tty0 is listed ,but not works.

    /dev/ttyS0 most likely.

    Have you considered using VirtualBox? It's included with SuSE and should install with minimum of hassle in case you cannot compile VMware even with our help.

    indeed, my kernel is 2.6.31.5-0.1.1 and i installed even the source package
    but the kernel headers in the standard repository is 2.6.31.3.4 so it seems I have to open a new trick box to get that version number updated but currently this trick box is empty for me .Hopefully soon there will be something useful in it

    Please post result of

    Code:
    rpm --query --all '*kernel*'
    For example I get:
    Code:
    linux-kernel-headers-2.6.31-3.4.noarch
    kernel-source-2.6.31.5-0.1.1.noarch
    kernel-default-devel-2.6.31.5-0.1.1.i586
    kernel-default-2.6.31.5-0.1.1.i586
    kernel-firmware-20090821-4.1.noarch
    And I have no trouble compiling against the kernel
    Leap 15.1_KDE

    I well understand you, if virtualbox could use an existing vmx(virtual machine) from vmware but that is just the catch. On my system , I've my home directory on an other partition . and of course i when installing opensuse i have not let it format so no data-losses. and my virtual machine is still there.
    To have a new working virtual machine setup in virtualbox that is a few days work (installing win2k, drivers ,serial numbers, plc programming software and plc software self).... huge amount of work

    I will try virtualbox as last solution still digging work to do but i'm not afraid of that

    by the way, thanks for your suggestion, its appreciated
