VMware tools/SuSE 8.2
Hello, I'm new to LQ.
I have compiled and installed software, but not a kernel yet. RPMs are too easy, and I grew up on DOS 5. I tell you this to give you some idea of my competence level.
My question is this:
I installed SuSE 8.2 as a guest on my XP Pro Host.
When I ran the installation script it started a configuration script that required the kernel-source headers, which I promptly
installed from the CDs and gave to the script.
It came back to me with "This isn't the right set of headers, you have 2.4.20-4GB source here, but your kernel was built with 2.4.20-4GB-athlon source."
Oh the pain.
How would I go about butchering this source, or even surgically supplanting the athlon code so that my beautiful VMware tools will work happily without any fuss?
