VMware and Kernel 2.6.6-1.427



I am trying to compile VMware torun on the 2.6.6-1.427 kernel, but I
keep gettinga compile error. It worked very well with the previous 2.6
kernel. Here is what I am getting in the attached file.

Thanks


 suitable vmmon module for your running kernel.
 
None of VMware Workstation's pre-built vmmon modules is suitable for your
running kernel.  Do you want this program to try to build the vmmon module for
your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)? [yes]
 
Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override.
 
What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/lib/modules/2.6.6-1.427/build/include]
