Kernel-header packages for 2.6.x kernel are not found in 'Testing' depositaries?


I'm running Debian 'Testing' and using 2.6.15-1-686-smp kernel. Vmware-tools require the kernel-header files of my running kernel to be installed. However, in 'Testing' (from results of aptitude search), there isn't any kernel-header package for 2.6 kernel, only for 2.4.

How should I go about installing the kernel-header package for my running kernel?

Thanks.

You need to search for "linux-headers", instead of "kernel-headers". I'm not running testing, but a search should bring up this package: http://packages.debian.org/testing/d...6.15-1-686-smp
