Kernel Headers 3.7-trunk-amd64 for kali linux?


I'm trying to find Kernel Headers 3.7-Trunk-amd64 for kali linux. I have checked on a google search and on the debian website but haven't been able to find any. I have also tried apt-get install and haven't had any successs there either. I need these kernel headers to run vmware player in kali. Does anyone know where I can get this kernel header or an alternative? Thanks in advance!

What about kali repositories? Also take a look at: http://www.kali.org/official-documentation/

Sorry it took me so long to respond.....I've been pretty busy the last couple of days. Yes, I have checked both the Kali and Deian repositories with no success. I would really like to have this. I am kind've surprised that it hasn't been anywhere online.

Have you though about compile it? Might be the best option.

How do I compile it? I'm only just getting into C++ and, though I'm studying bash scripting, I can really only do simple scripts. A short little tuturial or a web link about compiling might be helpful.

If Kali is based on Debian the Debian way to compile the kernel and the headers might work.
