vmware error


Hi all

When i installed vmware server this masseg is came


PHP Code:
Your kernel was built with "gcc" version "4.3.1", while you are trying to use
"/usr/bin/gcc" version "4.3"This configuration is not recommended and VMware
Server may crash 
if youll 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 "4.3" anyway? [noyes 

PHP Code:
What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel
? [/lib/modules/2.6.25.16-0.1-xen/build/include]

VMware usually isn't up-to-date with the latest and greatest kernels. I haven't had any luck with anything beyond 2.6.24-x so far myself.

In most cases, you'll need to find the latest vmware-any-any patch. Try googling for it but the latest patch I've attempted on a Fedora 8 machine with 2.6.25 wouldn't work.
