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


Hello all...

Here is my system information:


I am trying to install VMWare Player. I have apparently installed the Player, however I'm getting the following messages:




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. Once VMWare player is up, I'm going to run another instance of Fedora on it. 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. 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. I am a happy camper.
