Impossible install VMplayer with SMXI
 
Hello

I tried to istall VMware with SMXI and I got a error that it cannot match my kernel. Looking in Internet seems that there is not a version of VMware player for my kernel.

I have Debian wheezy, kernel is:
Code:

3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.32-1 x86_64 GNU/Linux
So is there any way to install VMware player?

I have VM Player running on 3.6.10 kernel .. you probably just need your kernel dev/devel package installed

Yes, meybe your right.

I miss kernel headers. How can I istall them if there are not in repositories?

In debian it's called linux-headers & linux-kbuild which are available in synaptic or apt-get.

When I run VMware in tells me that some modusl must me compiled and loaded into the running kernel. Kernel version for 3.2.0.4 were not found. It offers me to load it.

In synaptic I have installed headers for AMD 64bit 3.2.0.4

Quote:

miros@Miros-D:~$ ls /usr/src/
linux-headers-3.2.0-4-amd64 linux-kbuild-3.2
linux-headers-3.2.0-4-common sm-kernel-downloads
linux-headers-3.2.0-4-common-rt svmi-downloads
linux-headers-3.2.0-4-rt-amd64 virtualbox-4.1.18
I dont understand what I have to do?

You need the kernel development package that matches your running kernel (uname -r). For example, on my system:
Code:

$ uname -r
3.6.10-2.fc17.x86_64
$ ls /usr/src/kernels/
3.6.10-2.fc17.x86_64  3.6.7-4.fc17.x86_64  3.6.9-2.fc17.x86_64

The closest to kernel developmentr is kernel-package in debian
It's needed to compile kernel as stated here.
http://users.wowway.com/~zlinuxman/Kernel.htm
so my bad it wasn't linux-kbuild, although it is a dependency for linux-headers.

Install a new kernel only why I need to istall Vmware?
Hm...

Please check this pic. I have linux headers installed as Vmware ask me. Link: http://postimage.org/image/x96ppxm53/

you are showing linux-headers-common is the linux-headers opackage installed?
Also suggested was kern-devel which in debian would be kernel-package.

Synaptic
Kernel-package:
This package provides the capability to create a Debian kernel image
package by just running make-kpkg kernel_image in a kernel source
directory tree. It can also package the relevant kernel headers into
a kernel-headers package.
In general, this package is very useful if
you need to create a custom kernel, if, for example, the default
kernel does not support some of your hardware, or you wish a leaner,
meaner kernel. It also scripts the steps that need be taken to
compile the kernel, which is quite convenient (forgetting a crucial
step once was the initial motivation for this package). Please look at
/usr/share/doc/kernel-package/Rationale.gz for a full list of advantages
of this package.

Well,

Finaly I got it work.

I did that:

Quote:

Install required packages build-essential and linux-headers:

sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)
Download the latest VMware player e.g. VMware-Player-3.1.4-385536.i386.bundle (download the bundle version, not the rpm one) and run it as root using gksudo. You'll get a graphical installer that installs VMware player for you.

gksudo bash ./Downloads/VMware-Player-3.1.4-385536.i386.bundle
Problem that I have now is when restart computer, VMware is not wworking again....

What sort of symptoms are you seeing? .. is it failing to compile the modules still ?
