plz check my config-file for vmware
I’m also a Linux newbie and I have the same problem. So I looked for the /usr/src/linux map, but I couldn’t find it. I think the sources of my kernel wasn’t copied during the installation, or it was deleted after… I found “CONFIG_PARPORT” and “CONFIG_RTC” in my /boot/vmlinuz.config file, I hope this is a similar file to the config file in the /usr/src/linux map. Can someone say if this is the configuration that I should have? I doubt about it because in the answer above config_parport should have =y and mine is =m. I also did the lsmod, but I didn’t find parport* or rtc, so I think this is not compiled into my kernel and I have to recompile it? Am I right or wrong? Please tell me how to make the changed that are necessary and recompile my kernel …
Before Installing on a Linux Host (can be found in the installation manual of Vmware Workstation 4.0.5)
Before you install and run VMware Workstation, check the following notes and make any necessary adjustments to the configuration of your host operating system.
* The real-time clock function must be compiled into your Linux kernel.
* VMware Workstation for Linux requires that the parallel port PC-style hardware
option (CONFIG_PARPORT_PC) be built and loaded as a kernel module (that is, it
must be set to m when the kernel is compiled).
egrep /boot/vmlinuz.config -e "^CONFIG_(PARPORT|RTC)"

Plz check it and tell me what to do!
ps: if somebody knows a simple/easy guide/tutorial of how to recompile a kernel, what is needed for it and so on... please let me know it!
