Question VMWare and Red Hat 8


I'm trying to install VMWare in a RH 8 system it doesn't work because it doesn't have a pre-built module for it's kernel... it asks for C header files to create a module, but those I found aren't from the same kernel... what to do? did I found the wrong header files, or do I need to upgrade them?

There is a great article here on user mode Linux written by IBM. It's a new article and the virtual machne was tested with RH 8.0 < http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/linux/ >

You have to register but it is free....and it's IBM.

I have vmware (3.2) and rh8. Works fine. Just a bit slow at times.
I'm still trying to get the internet to work... but other than that everything seems fine.

This question was answered better on the General Linux board.

i'm really new to linux, so i have no idea what you're talking about

But all i did was
- install vmware
- created a vm and changed the config for the cdrom to point to the iso image file of rh8.
- clicked power on
- followed the setup instructions in rh8 (and vmware help - very important cuz u have to install things like vmware tools, etc.)

And that's it.

I have xp pro installled (in fat32) in dual boot and created a vitual machine as to boot it. Booting starts fine but hangs up just when that XP image should have come up. Any one know about that isue?

When Running VMWare, it emulates an entire PC, even BIOS, etc, and Win XP can't stand too much hardware change... if you change too much hardware, you'll get a blue screen... keep your Windows partitions, but install winxp via vmware, open your xp virtual machine and it's setup, make it boot via CD-ROM, and re-install XP, then it will work in VMWare, but not out of it... I guess this only happens with XP, I didn't test 95, ME ou 2k yet, but 98 worked fine
