Hi everybody. I am new here and to Linux which am falling in love with.
I ran Fedora 9 on Virtual PC 2007 so I needed to install the Virtual machine additions. I used "Install or update virtual machine additions" from the VM menu and followed the steps to capture the iso image. I didn't know if there is a command to install all of them together so I double clicked on each package to install it which ran smoothly until I got this error for one of the packages:
Dependency resolution failed
Kernel-source >= 2.4.9 is needed by package vmadd-full-2.0-1.i386
By the way, I updated the whole system and the kernel is up to date.
Thank you guys for the replies.
knudfl I did installed the kernel-devel and its up to date.
but I still get this problem. Would you please PLEASE tell me the best way to get these virtual machine additions.
You should be able to install kernel source with your package manager.If the package wmadd requiers some older kernel and its sources no matter if there is "Kernel-source >= 2.4.9 is needed..." then you'll maybe have to search for the kernel that wmadd will work with if you really want to install that package.
