Hi All,

I am having trubs installing VMware 3.2 workstaton on my new Mandrake 9.2 setup.

I get up to the part of telling the install script where the 'Location of the directory of C header files that match your running kernel' are.

I tell it to look in /usr/include, and it comes back with 'The directory of kernel headers (version 2.4.22) does not match your running kernel (verion 2.4.22-10mdk). Even if the module were to compile successfully, it would not load into the running kernel.'

I do not know where else to point it, or how to progress any further. My Linux knowledge is growing but obviuosly not fast nough.

Any help greatfully appreciated.

Install the kernel-source package for your current kernel ...

do the command:

rpm -q kernel-source

if it says package kernel-source is not installed then do this (if you have kernel-source skip the urpmi step):

urpmi kernel-source ... mandrake should ask you for the proper CD and install the kernel-source.

Now you should be able to point to /usr/src/linux-2.4.22-10mdk/include/
