C+


Hi guys.

I am trying to install VMWARE. It asks me "What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel?" What? I have C installed but where is it?
I am running RedHat9

You need the kernel source/header files installed. Usually hunt in /usr/src/linux/

Well my /usr/src/linux is a symlink to linux-2.4.21-0.13mdk. The only other directory in /usr/src is /rpms. Maybe RedHat is different, or they're hidden files for you, or you havent installed them.

There is no C+, there's C, and C++, and even Microsoft C#, but no C+.
Almost all compiled linux apps are written in C/C++, but I dont think you want to install every C/C++ source. Often your distro will subtitle the useful ones under a Development packages heading, to easy installing, compiling and development of apps on your box.

Right... you try easily edit the registry... admit, it's a mess

Try downloading the kernel files from kernel.org or Redhat maybe
