install SLED10 in vmware gsx 3.2.1 of win


I install SLED10 in vmware gsx 3.2.1 of win, when install vmware tool:

Code:
vm-sled10:/usr/local/src/vmware-tools-distrib # ./vmware-install.pl
It ask:
[code]What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [ /usr/src/linux/include ]
[code]

When I press Enter, it say:
Code:
The kernel defined by this directory of header files does not have the same
address space size as your running kernel.

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [ /usr/src/linux/include ]
I install the kernel source, and have the directory /usr/src/linux/include.

Who can help me?

It will give that error if you have recently updated the kernel and not rebooted into it or you have booted into a previous kernel and are tring to install. So in short... reboot your system, make sure you boot into the latest kernel (suse 10 does this by default) and try again.

oh no its compatable....

open nautilus and browse to /usr/src/linux/ .... find your kernel source path, meaning if you are using kernel 2.6.21 look for /usr/src/linux/2.6.21/include or whatever if you are not sure what kernel version you are using run in terminal "uname -r"... then manually enter it when vmware asks for it....
