Thread: Where can I download 11.4 source?

  1. #1

    Default Where can I download 11.4 source?

    Hallo, I am having trouble running VMWare player in my linux. I am using:

    VMware-Player-3.1.3-324285.i386.bundle
    OpenSUSE 11.4

    I was trying to run VMWare player but it prompt me that the vmmon module could not compile. After a search in the forum, I have install the kernel-source and kernel-syms. And now it prompt me a dialog:

    "Before you can run VMWare, several modules must be compiled and loaded into the running kernel."

    This dialog require me to give the location of the "Kernel Header 2.6.37.1-1.2-default". I am not able to locate the kernel source in OpenSUSE 11.4, or may be I haven't download it yet.

    May I know where can I get/download the kernel source?

    THanks @!

    Normally you should consider doing the following:

    Open YaST / Software / Software Management - Select the View Button on the top left and pick Patterns. Now, you will see several Patterns listed and you want to select:

    Code:
        Development 
    
    [X] Base Development
    [X] Linux Kernel Development
    [X] C/C++ Development
    Then Press the Accept button on the bottom right and allow these applications to install.

    If you search google for "opensuse repositories" you will find this hit at or near the top: Package repositories - openSUSE

    If you look down that page, you will note

    Src-oss

    Source RPMs. Advanced users only.
    Version: 11.4 Index of /source/distribution/11.4/repo/oss

    Version: 11.3 Index of /source/distribution/11.3/repo/oss

    Version: 11.2 Index of /source/distribution/11.2/repo/oss

    Version: 11.1 Index of /source/distribution/11.1/repo/oss


    Src-non-oss

    Source RPMs. Advanced users only.
    Version: 11.4 Index of /source/distribution/11.4/repo/non-oss

    Version: 11.3 Index of /source/distribution/11.3/repo/non-oss

    Version: 11.2 Index of /source/distribution/11.2/repo/non-oss

    Version: 11.1 Index of /source/distribution/11.1/repo/non-oss


    Reference the source for 'update' where one will note this for update:

    Update

    Repository for official security and bugfix updates.
    Version: 11.4 Index of /update/11.4

    Version: 11.3 Index of /update/11.3

    Version: 11.2 Index of /update/11.2

    Version: 11.1 Index of /update/11.1


    If you look at each link (say 11.4) in Update, and go to the lower level, then you will see a .src directory. So for 11.4 UPDATE repository source code, the directory (not the repository URL for zypper/yast) is:
    Code:
    http://download.opensuse.org/update/11.4/rpm/src/
    Its all very logical and easy to find.

    You can find this using a simple rpm command.

    Lets say you downloaded and installed kernel-source. You can see where it has installed by typing:
    Code:
    rpm -qi kernel-source -l

    I think I know what cause the problem. The kernel source that the vmware player request is version 2.6.37.1 and the kernel source that I have downloaded is 2.6.37.6. I think vmware player was using the old kernel source during the development.

    THanks @!

    Read the wiki page about vmware on opensuse. I don't have the link available.
