Header Files


I'm trying to install VMWare under CentOS 5.0 and given the similarity of CentOS to Fedora, I thought I would post my question here.

In following an article on the "HowtoForge" it said to go under Add/Remove Software and add in the Development Tools and Development Libraries. Got that done but when I go through the VMWare installation, it chokes looking for the headers in the \usr\src......\include. I don't have that subdir. In fact, all of the subdirs under \usr\src are empty.

Is there something that I could do with yum through the terminal to get these headers?

I'm hoping that what works for Fedora will work for CentOS.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Use; yum install kernel-devel kernel-headers

FYI: please install either VMware-workstation-5.5.3/4 or the new 6-beta, you will have problems otherwise.

You might want to review the CentOS5 forums here also: http://www.centos.org/modules/newbb/

Thanks for the help.

I had just downloaded the free server from the VMWare site. I'll look again at the version number.

I just looked at that CentOS forum listing you provided. It doesn't look good.

Thanks again.

The latest free version of the VMware server is OK, I was warning you of the VMware Workstation stuff which is different.

In addition to kernel-headers and kernel-devel, you will also want to install gcc-c++.
