Trouble building vmmon module for VMware Server with Slackware 10.2
 
My system is a clean install other than the upgraded 2.6.17.1 kernel and an upgraded gcc 4.1.1 since I read it caused trouble with this.

I've reinstalled Slackware more times than I can count trying to get this bugger to work and each time a new problem crops up.

Any help would really be appreciated.

Code:

root@lugh:~# which gcc
/usr/local/bin/gcc
root@lugh:~# gcc -v
Using built-in specs.
Target: i686-pc-linux-gnu
Configured with: /usr/src/gcc-4.1.1/configure
Thread model: posix
gcc version 4.1.1
root@lugh:~#

Code:

Trying to find a suitable vmmon module for your running kernel.

None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Server is suitable for your
running kernel.  Do you want this program to try to build the vmmon module for
your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)? [yes]

Setup is unable to find the "gcc" program on your machine.  Please make sure it
is installed.  Do you want to specify the location of this program by hand?
[yes]

What is the location of the "gcc" program on your machine?

The answer "" is invalid.  It must be the complete name of a binary file.

What is the location of the "gcc" program on your machine? /usr/local/bin/gcc

Using compiler "/usr/local/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override.

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/lib/modules/2.6.17.1/build/include]

Sounds like the symbolic link needs changed.
Use find /usr -iname '*gcc*' to find your version 4.1.1
On my slackbox, I only have /usr/bin/i486-slackware-linux-gcc-3.3.6, so its likely in the same location only you've upgraded to 4.1.1


Once you find the gcc-4.1.1 executable
Code:

ln  -sf  /usr/bin/<gcc-4.1.1>  /usr/local/bin/gcc

Or did I fudge up somewhere?

musicman_ace 07-03-2006 06:11 AM

Looks to me like /usr/local/bin/i686-pc-linux-gnu-gcc-4.1.1 would be the gcc-4.1.1 executable. I can't verify that, so you should navigate to that directory and check the file permissions to verify that that file is the gcc executable. If it is, then create a symbolic link as suggested in vmware's error output

--EDIT--
Just for grins, gcc-config -l and verify that you have 4.1.1 as your current compiler.

I'm not sure how to check file permisions, but I know that is the executable because:

Code:

root@lugh:~# /usr/local/bin/i686-pc-linux-gnu-gcc-4.1.1
i686-pc-linux-gnu-gcc-4.1.1: no input files
root@lugh:~#

And gcc-config doesn't work; No command found.

I can do gcc -v and get

Code:

root@lugh:~# gcc -v
Using built-in specs.
Target: i686-pc-linux-gnu
Configured with: /usr/src/gcc-4.1.1/configure
Thread model: posix
gcc version 4.1.1
root@lugh:~#

And I'm not exactly sure how to do symbolic links. I tried it a few times before but I don't they worked.

musicman_ace 07-03-2006 09:48 AM

creating a symbolic link should be
Code:

ln -s /usr/local/bin/i686-pc-linux-gnu-gcc-4.1.1 /usr/local/bin/gcc
However, I usually mess it up by putting the target and destination in the wrong order. I believe the above should do it, if it doesn't then reverse the two paths

As for checking file permissions, ls -l will give you something like:

drwxrw-r-x


D is directory, if its not a directory then the d would be a -
the others are Read, Write, and eXecute.

That shows that the /usr/loca/bin/gcc is already a symbolic link to the 4.1.1 version of gcc. Just for fun, remove /usr/local/bin/gcc and then recreate the symbolic link.

If that doesn't work, then I'm thinking that it wants the symbolic link to be the older version of gcc.

Could you post your PATH output. After re-reading, the gcc getting executed needs to be re-linked to /usr/local/bin/gcc, which means that there is probably another link to this link. We'll need to check each directory in your PATH in sequence until we find it and then verify that it links to /usr/local/bin/gcc.

Lothoir 07-15-2006 03:23 PM

I'm really sorry but had to go away for a little over a week and barely had enough time to tell my friends.

Anyways I tried typing PATH and path into the shell but got nothing. Googled Path but just got howtos on setting the path and adding stuff but not reading it.

Boow 07-15-2006 07:50 PM

try echo $PATH

when you installed gcc-4 did you uninstall the old version. could be conflicts

you might try

export CC=/usr/local/bin/i686-pc-linux-gnu-gcc-4.1.1

Lothoir 07-15-2006 09:01 PM

Thanks.
Here's what I got.
Code:

root@lugh:~# echo $PATH
/usr/local/sbin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/games:/usr/lib/java/bin:/usr/lib/java/jre/bin:/opt/kde/bin:/usr/lib/qt/bin:/usr/share/texmf/bin
root@lugh:~#

And I didn't uninstall my previous version, I don't know how, and I'm pretty sure the guide told me not to uninstall.
