vmware hates rebuilds


i had vmware installed on my system. today, i made a new kernel. i used 2.3.19-16mdk, but i built it up to 2.4.20 today, and after i did that, vmware said it wasnt configured for my kernel because i upgraded. so i went back to my old kernel, and i still have the same problem. when i run the configuration tool for vmware (vmware-config.pl) i still get the error. it says something like it cant find the libraries for my current running kernel. its looking in the /usr/src/linux/libraries, but my kernel is in /usr/src/kernel-2.4.19-16mdk/libraries, so i typed in the dir. with MY kernel, and it says something to the effect of "the kernel libraries,(linux-2.4.19-16mdk) are not the current running kernel libraries,(linux-2.4.19-16mdk)

something to that affect. so what wrong ? do i need to reinstall linux ?

<i>Argument "gcc (GCC) 3" isn't numeric in numeric ge (>=) at ./vmware-config.pl line 1493, <STDIN> line 1.
What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]</i>

I then enter the location of the only header files on the system(AFAIK) which happen to be /usr/include and I get this error

<i>cpp0: warning: changing search order for system directory "/usr/include"
cpp0: warning: as it has already been specified as a non-system directory
The directory of kernel headers (version 2.4.18) does not match your running
kernel (version 2.4.19-16mdk). Even if the module were to compile successfully,it would not load into the running kernel.

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]</i>

/usr/include is the only .h files with the correct directory structure vmware requires(i.e. it includes the directories asm, net, linux). Please help me finish this install.



this is the error
