Neither googling nor a visit to vmware's site provided an answer.

vmware workstation 5.0 installed without complaint on fc4; however, an attempt to run vmware-config.pl fails with errors at the stage where it attempts to compile vmmon.ko. The specific errors are:

First, you should update to vmware 5.5.1 It is free for 5.0 users if I
remember correctly.

Then, before you execute vmware-config.pl you must apply patch
any-any-update99 from http://ftp.cvut.cz/vmware

Thanks, Peter.

I continue to receive the same errors.

Believing that perhaps my kernel build tree was corrupt I uninstalled vmware and the kernel sources and started from scratch.

(as root)
rpm --install kernel-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.i686.rpm
rpm --install kernel-devel-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.i686.rpm

cd /tmp
tar zxvf VMware-5.5.1-workstation-19175.tar.gz
cd vmware-distrib
(accepted defaults until asked to run vmware-config.pl: no)

cd ..
tar zxvf vmware-any-any-update99.tar.gz
cd vmware-any-any-update99
(script performed patches then asked to run vmware-config.pl: yes)
(accepted defaults)

Same errors as before:
  irq_vectors.h not found
  NR_IRQS and NR_IRQ_VECTORS undefined.

Anybody have any experiences like these?

Thanks for any help.
Mike Wright  :m)
