Unhappy wmware HELP!!!!


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

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

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

Argument "gcc (GCC) 3" isn't numeric in numeric ge (>=) at /usr/bin/vmware-config.pl line 1493, <STDIN> line 3.
What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/lib/modules/2.4.21-0.13mdk/build/include] /usr/share/doc/kernel-source-2.4.21

The path "/usr/share/doc/kernel-source-2.4.21" is an existing directory, but it
does not contain at least one of these directories "linux", "asm", "net" as
expected.

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/lib/modules/2.4.21-0.13mdk/build/include]



I installed the c header files... but it keeps complaining... i am not a genius on here so is there any help i can get in english???? :P

anyone know the REAL filepath to the files, where it will not complain about there not being a linux folder and whatnot.

Not sure about Mandrake but I'm running Red Hat 9.0 and my headers are in /usr/src/<kernel-version>/include

Since Mandrake is based on RH you might want to look there.

Good luck!

Mike
