Re: VMware and Fedora Core 4

Hi Don,

Try the information in the following URL.


Or more specifically the following.

This section has the following instructions to make kernel source files usable so vmware-config.pl can compile the kernel modules.

  1. Install kernel-source.$ARCH.rpm.
  2. Change to the /usr/src/linux directory. Run the following command:
    make cloneconfig
  3. Run the following command:
    make modules_prepare
I was also having problems running VMWare Workstation 5 on a Suse 9.3 host and this fixed the problem for me.

Haven't been able to try VMWare on FC4 yet as I got a boot block signal error after installing. Still investigating but I suspect it may be something to do with the LVM.

I recently upgraded my laptop from FC3 to FC4 (run the upgrade option)

Vmware will not start because of the change in kernel
it is asking for the directory that the c header files are in

I tried googling, searching and searching, but no luck

I pulled down the kernel-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.src.rpm, and installed using

rpm -ivh kernel-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.src.rpm

It seemed to install.......... but where are those pesky c header files
for kernel 2.6.11??

Please help, someone.......... It will be my birthday wish come true!!!!
