Help ME!! -- VMWare giving installation error


Dear All
I install VMware-workstation-5.5.2-29772.i386.rpm BUT its not find c header file.
i done following procedure.

[root@suraj soft]# /usr/bin/vmware-config.pl
Making sure services for VMware Workstation are stopped.

Stopping VMware services:
Virtual machine monitor [ OK ]

Configuring fallback GTK+ 2.4 libraries.

In which directory do you want to install the mime type icons?
[/usr/share/icons]

What directory contains your desktop menu entry files? These files have a
.desktop file extension. [/usr/share/applications]

In which directory do you want to install the application's icon?
[/usr/share/pixmaps]

Trying to find a suitable vmmon module for your running kernel.

None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Workstation is suitable for your
running kernel. Do you want this program to try to build the vmmon module for
your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)? [yes] yes

Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override.

Your kernel was built with "gcc" version "4.1.0", while you are trying to use
"/usr/bin/gcc" version "4.1.1". This configuration is not recommended and
VMware Workstation may crash if you'll continue. Please try to use exactly same
compiler as one used for building your kernel. Do you want to go with compiler
"/usr/bin/gcc" version "4.1.1" anyway? [no] yes

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

i give path for this but every time it demand for same.


Pl. Help me

First it helps to say what distro you are using. Please put it into your profile so that it appears left to your posts.

Then, to compile the VMWare modules you need the kernel headers, which do not seem to be installed. Please install them; the package name will probably be something having the names "kernel" and "headers".

We can tell you more when we know what distro.
