vmware looking for c header files for kernel
Hello, I am new to debian and am attempting to install vmware inside my debian install. I have kernel 2.6.9 and vmware is asking for the location of my C header files for my kernel [/lusr/src/linux/include] I do not have this location so I am assuming to do not have the kernel source installed. What is the best way to install just ther kernel source (if this is what I need to do)? Could they be in a different location? Thanks

I am now trying to use apt-get to get the kernel source. But there is no kernel 2.6.9 When I do a uname -an i get the following
linux 2.6.9

also I am using the auditor tool kit install of debian (if that matters).

Any ideas which kernel to select?

you need to download the kernel source, unpack it and do
ln -s /usr/src/kernel-source-2.6.x /usr/src/linux and it should work.
But you can also just do it with the kernel-headers...
Good luck!

Do you have a symlink /usr/src/linux pointing to your kernel source ?

# apt-get install kernel-headers-`uname -r`
