Where are the C headers in Mandrake 10.0?


I am trying to install VMware workstation and it asks for the C headers associated with my kernel... Where exactly are they? I can't find them.

Mandrake probably didn't install them for you. There should be a RPM package called kernel-headers that you can install. Check for yourself to see if it is installed by typing rpm -q kernel-headers and go ahead and install it if it is not installed.

It says it isn't installed... But then when I go search for the RPMs, the kernel-header isn't there.

In the search box for the RPM installer. Type kernel. You should see a few entries. Click on kernel-devel or similar. Its the kernel source code. Also type gcc and select only version 3.2. gcc is the compiler that you need for vmware to compile a few modules (drivers).

Well, I did have the kernel C headers... They were just in a different place. But unfortunately VMware refuses to work with Mandrake 10.0... It says it is only compatible with Mandrake 9.2.

I had zero problems installing VMWare 4.5.1 under Mandrake 10 (the download edition). Only thing I did prior to install was make sure I had the kernel source packages loaded (which weren't loaded by default in my installation).
