vmware workstation 7.1.5 fails to compile toos un OpenSUSE 12.1

Hi all, I need to use VMware workstation 7.1.5; it used to work fine under 11.4_64. with my current OS (Linux 3.1.10-1.9-desktop x86_64, 4.7.2 (4.7.2) “release 5”) it does not work; it installs fine but at first run it asks to recompile needed modules and that step fails; the error message is:
Cannot execute command ’ ‘’’’/usr/bin/vmware-modconfig’’’ --icon=’’‘vmware-workstation’’’ --appname=’’‘VMware’’’ --gcc=’’’/usr/bin/gcc’’’ --headers=’’’/lib/modules/3.1.10-1.9-desktop/build/include’’’ --gcc-ignore-minor ‘’.

I could not find any patches/updates on VMware website; only a similar problem with Ubuntu (but not exactly the same)
any help is greatly appreciated!

It could be that I understand you wrong, but when this is a Virtualization problem, it should have gone in the Virualization sub-forum.

And I guess you show above some computer text output. To post that sort of output in a readable way here, copy/paste it between CODE tags: http://forums.opensuse.org/english/information-new-users/advanced-how-faq-read-only/451526-posting-code-tags-guide.html

thanks, reposted under the proper sub-forum;
