kernel-2.6.11-1.14_FC3 and vmware 4.5



Just did an update of the kernel and everything went smoothly, as
always. Have the nvidia driver directly from nvidia. Very reliable.

But then I noticed that KNemo was showing my vmnet1 and vmnet8 icons
greyed out. No problem, had forgotten to run the vmware-config.pl
script. Ran it, was told the new kernel was compiled with gcc 3.4.3
and I have 3.4.2. Sure enough, after doing an update of the system,
the new gcc-3.4.3 arrived.

Well, tried to reconfigure vmware using the proper gcc, and I get this error:

The module loads perfectly in the running kernel.

This program previously created the file /dev/vmmon, and was about to remove it.
Somebody else apparently did it already.

There is probably a slight difference in the kernel configuration between the
set of C header files you specified and your running kernel.  You may want to
rebuild a kernel based on that directory, or specify another directory.


Any ideas? The new kernel was compiled with a gcc that is not the one
that has been released? So, where do I get the right gcc?
