VMware - linux-headers-2.6.18-xxx
 
Hey guys,
I wanted to ask you, if you could help me setting up linux-headers on a Debian 5.0.6 Lenny vServer.
uname -a:
Code:

Linux euve10145.vserver.de 2.6.18-028stab070.3 #1 SMP Wed Jul 21 18:33:27 MSD 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux
The kernel is some special product from the hoster ( server4you.de/com if anyone has experience here ) and I can't really find linux-headers for this kernel, so I figured it would be best to take either
Code:

linux-headers-2.6.18-6-vserver-amd64
or
Code:

linux-headers-2.6.18-6-amd64
since those are the two closest ones to my kernel I think.
But now there's a problem:
In order to install one of those headers I have to met dependencies with gcc-3.3 - really old.
And surprise, surprise there's no more package for apt to get.
So I searched the web and finally found three packages gcc-3.3, gcc-3.3-base and cpp-3.3.
I set all of them up then tried again to apt-get the headers but it was still not possible:
Code:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  linux-headers-2.6.18-6-vserver-amd64: Depends: gcc-3.3 but it is not installable
E: Broken packages

although I already had gcc-3.3 actually.
If you read this far I already want to thank you for your patience and concentration.
I really can't figure how to solve this and I hope such a great community as you are can help me.

Personally I'd ask my hoster rather than trying to fix a problem
w/ random old packages ... that, plus there's a pretty good chance
that VMware won't run on a vServer in the first place - there's
already a HyperVisor up & running.



Cheers,

Thank you for your answer,
the problem is: I already asked and they told me the headers were only available for roots and no vServers which cost about 6 times as much.
I know this is kind of a desperate try to set it up, but I'd really like seeing an Office Communications Server on the vServer because as a pupil I don't have the money to pay an extra 10€ per month for windows ( and besides that, I wanted a linux-server anyway ).
Gotta be a possibility to get this running don't you think?

Not necessarily, as I pointed out above. Why don't just use a
Linux based "communications server" like jabber, rather than
trying to circumvent your hosters restrictions, and bother with
maintaining windows (got licence!?) on top of Debian?



Cheers,

MS Server 2008 R2 and The 2007 R2 OCS are available 180 days for free ;)
I wanted to set up a MS Office Server because of the integration into Word, OneNote, Outlook etc. the whole office suite, that is widely used to work with, for example in my school.
Nothing against jabber, but doesn't really work out without a client, does it?
Furthermore my hoster does not restrict the use of VMs or the likes, they just don't provide kernel-headers for their kernels.
