Crash
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.

Cheers

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/
