VMWare Player - Fedora 13 - no kernel-header files...
 
Hello all...

Here is my system information:
http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a98...nformation.png

I am trying to install VMWare Player. I have apparently installed the Player, however I'm getting the following messages:
http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a98...al-Updater.png

http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a98...-not-found.png

I used the instructions from here:
http://fedorasolved.org/post-install...player-install

One thing that I was unable to do from these instructions was the vmware-any-any-update file. I was unable to locate the file anywhere. Every link I locate for it takes me to a website for some German company. Unfortunately I can't read German, so if they are instructing me to follow another link, I am unable to see it.

I humbly request any guidance that is available. :D Once VMWare player is up, I'm going to run another instance of Fedora on it. :D I'm hooked.

you have to install the kernel headers

Code:

yum install kernel-headers kernel-source

I believe I have already done this, however, I will attempt it tonight to be 100% sure I've covered that. :D Thanks for the info, it is greatly appreciated.

Ok,

I ran the above command, and got this response:

"Package kernel-headers-2.6.34.7-66.fc13.i686 already installed and latest version
No package kernel-source available.
Nothing to do"

Received the same message about the headers listed above. Once again, I do appreciate the advice.

Any other thoughts community mates???

Ah. You have the PAE kernel running that means that you will have to do a:

Code:

yum install kernel-PAE-devel

This is what was needed. I have VMWare player up and running wonderfully. :D I am a happy camper.
