Kernel Header Files


I'm trying to install Vmare 4.5.1 on Suse 9.1. on running vmware-install.pl
it asks

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]

/usr/src/linux/include this directory doesn't exsist on my system. Where are the header files ?

To get /usr/src/linux/include, you'll need to install the kernel sources.

Open Yast -> Software -> Install and Remove Software

Select filter 'Search'

search for 'kernel-source', check the entry, click 'Accept'

Voilą!

If you ran an Online Update previously, you'll need to run it again after the installation of the kernel sources, to get the same version (kernel and source).

If you have 9.1 Personal edition, the sources are not on the CD and you'll need to download them from any SuSE FTP server.
