kernel-header install

After the final install vmware workstation,Program not open and erroe kernel-header is not found.
How can I install linux-kernel-header in my opensuse 12.3?
i can’t install it with zypper. also no exist in YAst>software management kernel-header.

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:


[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.

Thank You,

I do not underestand exactly,i want just install kernel-header.i installed more of the packages, i upload Photos of YaST / Software / Software Management .please help.

ok kernel-headers is no longer a separate package I think, so install kernel-source and you will get the headers.

But if you need the headers you will also need the c++ compiler and other development tools also

Please reread as I provided exact instructions for a KDE user, the default, for which you did not mention the desktop used.

Thank You,

The headers reside in the linux-glibc-devel (Linux headers for userspace development) package.

I install linux-glibc-devel,but yet not install kernel-header. Hazy…!

What version of vmware is it player or workstation, can you post the output from the command;

uname -a

Can you do a capture of the error your seeing from vmware?

it,s vmware workstation 9.0.1 and opensuse 12.3

You need to check the vmware forums for a patch for the 3.7 kernel, the files are there, it’s vmware that can’t find them…

Do what jdmcdaniel3 said you will need the development packages to compile even if you have the headers. So even if you install the header you will still need gcc and maybe make at the least.

Once the installer finds the headers it will need gcc etc.

I usually install the “base development” pattern, which brings in gcc, make and other basic tools. And I also install the “kernel-syms” package, which brings in the headers as a dependency.
