I’m attempting to install VMware Server, and it’s asking me where the headers used to compile my kernel are. I’m running kernel 188.8.131.52-0.1-default. Yast says I have 2.6.27-2.28 headers installed, and that’s the latest version. I can’t even find those though. Does anyone know where I can find these files?
Possibly what you actually need is kernel-source
from a su terminal
zypper in kernel-source
I ran that command, and it seems to have downloaded the source files. Where do I now point the VMware installation script to find them?
Are you saying you have run the vmware installer again and it still does not work?
I got similar issue with workstation 6.5.2 and kernel 184.108.40.206-9 i got sources but i forgot to get the headers and now i’m no more connected to the internet at home.
I tried for five hours to find the kernel headers from the internet in rpm format (for exemple) and i never found it.
Can someone could tell me where i could find kernel headers for 220.127.116.11-9 ???
Thank you !!
Of your install DVD… the headers don’t change with an updated
kernel as long as the 2.6.27 is there

Thank you, I first thought about using the install dvd… but those headers where not the 22.214.171.124-9 and vmware still don’t want to compile modules…
I’m now searching for kernel 126.96.36.199 headers… same issue, still not connected but i will bring my computer at my father’s and then set a complete update and hope vmware will work under linux… now i’m using it on windows and it works but i prefer linux because concerning wifi the drivers under linux could inject packets under windows igt is impossible… and linux under vmware won’t inject packets…
