help w windows emulation


ok, trying to configure things here:

First I am still trying to get win4lin pro to work.
when I run installwin4linpro I get this:
/opt/win4linpro/bin/installwinpro
grep: /etc/default/mergepro: Permission denied
grep: /etc/default/mergepro: Permission denied
ERROR: missing STATICMERGE or VARMERGE in /etc/default/mergepro

my mergepro file includes this:
# Merge Pro defaults
MRGPRO_INST_DATE="Wed Aug 17 07:39:13 EDT 2005"
MRGPRO_NODENAME="localhost"
MRGPRO_SYSNAME="Linux"
MRGPRO_SYSREL="2.6.11-6mdk"
MRGPRO_SYSVER="#1 Tue Mar 22 16:04:32 CET 2005"
MRGPRO_SYSMACHINE="i686"
VARMERGE="/var/win4linpro"
STATICMERGE="/opt/win4linpro"
MRGPRO_SYSTEMTYPE="linux"
MRGPRO_MERGENAME="Win4Lin Pro"
MRGPRO_CD_DEV_NAME="/dev/cdrom"

so I don't understand why there is an error.


Also, trying VMware Workstation, I get this error:

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

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]
I have kernel sources installed in /usr/src/linux/ for mandrake 10.2

Ok I Got most of this figured out, (needed to have the same sources as the kernel I'm currently using installed) now I'm in this point.

in win4lin pro:
installwinpro
grep: /etc/default/mergepro: Permission denied
grep: /etc/default/mergepro: Permission denied
ERROR: missing STATICMERGE or VARMERGE in /etc/default/mergepro

I have tried changeing the permission on this file various ways, but no result.

Also, STATICMEREGE and VARMERGE are both inthe mergepro file. any ideas?

Permission denied probably means that you are not logged in as the root user.
You should become root first.

The kernel header files should be in /usr/src/linux/include and not /usr/src/linux

cannot??
well then you need to change the permissions of /etc/default/mergepro.
This should work:
Quote:
chmod a+rw /etc/default/mergepro
Note: you should run chmod as root.
