During the VMware Tools installation program script thing, it asks for "The location of the directory of the C header files matching your running kernel".
I've found my headers in /usr/src/linux-headers2.6.39-2-486, however it returns the error
The directory of kernel headers (version @@VMWARE@@ UTS-RELEASE) does not match your running kernel (version 2.6.39-2-486).
I cannot find anything in these directories about "@@VMWARE@@ UTS-RELEASE".
$ uname -r
#define LINUX_VERSION_CODE 132647
#define KERNEL_VERSION(a,b,c) (((a) << 16) + ((b) << 8) + (c))
What can I do to make it accept this directory, shall I find the file that mentions "@@VMWARE@@..." or just start a new virtual machine from scratch? I've also got an ubuntu VM that has VMware tools, and it installed with no difficulties at all!
