Install VMWare tool on Open SuSE 11.4


i am using Open Suse 11.4 as VMWare guest, I installed the Open Suse on the Guest using the Live CD and when I am trying to install vmware-tools am getting an error that its not able to find the linux-headers :frowning:

I have installed all other prereq’s using zypper, when i try to do zypper in linux-kernel-headers am getting this error

Loading repository data…
Reading installed packages…
‘linux-kernel-headers’ not found in package names. Trying capabilities.
‘linux-glibc-devel’ providing ‘linux-kernel-headers’ is already installed.
Resolving package dependencies…

Can anyone tell me how to resolve this ? Is there any way i can specify the linux-glibc-devel’ providing ‘linux-kernel-headers’ for the vmware tools so that the installation is completed successfully ?



use the flavor of the installed kernel

note this will also pull in kernel-devel

thanks a lot it worked :slight_smile:
