I only have kernel name for download


My instructor at school had downloaded fedora on my external hard drive. His download was a 32 bit, so I could still load on my 64 bit at home. This would allow me to open guest on both computers. However, circumstances with the login occurred, and I have to re install. I am trying to find the exact same thing that he had (he is not available for me to use the cd). All I have is the kernel, as this was all that would show. I want to make sure I download the correct version, so I can continue to use the guest on the 32 and 64 bit machines.

The kernel is:
2.6.31.5-127.fc12.i686.PAE

Can someone refer me to the correct download?

suggests "Fedora Core 12" -> http://fedoraproject.org/ (actually on version 14)

to get the version 12, this may help: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...c-12-a-768161/

ok. I have gotten this far:

in my guest, I clicked on Virtual Machine> Install VmWare Tools. Now I had the iso image on my desktop, which now is a cd saying "VMware Tools" I am unsure what to do since it is empty. I did locate this in cl:

[me@lhocalhost media]$ ls
fedora-14-i686-Live-Desktop

Does this mean I did not install VMware Tools?

Did you install your guest system, or are you just running it as live-system? Installing the VMware Tools only makes sense on an installed system, but not on a live-system.

the install was "Fedora 14 live", the link above took me too. I am trying to install Fedora 14 on my guest. I do not want the live.

Then just start from the live-iso, and when it comes to the desktop click on install and follow the steps on the screen. After you have installed it into your VM you can install the VMware Tools.

I have already installed the Fedora 14 live iso. I have also tried to install vmware tools, as the icon on the desktop shows, however, when I click it, it is just an empty folder. This is when I clicked install vmware tools from the top of the guest. Even after the "disc icon" showed up on my desktop, when you look at the menu on the top of the guest, it says "cancel vmware tools". Does this mean it is not installed or can't install?

I am doing the update yum install, and after when I am supposed to find vmware 2.xxxxx, is where i get lost. Where is this file? Do I have to manually download it? Is there a step by step guide for this process? I am very new, and it would be very helpful. Thanks
