Hey everyone!

I am pretty new to Linux, and I'm loving it, but I need some help!

I still need to hold on to windoze for a little bit longer while I make the full conversion. There are still a few apps I need to run in windoze. I want to install vmware, however I am having a problem. The installation on RH8 was fine, once I upgraded to RH9 and tried to reinstall vmware I got the following error after executng :

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/usr/src/linux-2.4.20-6/include]

Extracting the sources of the vmmon module.

Building the vmmon module.

make: Entering directory `/tmp/vmware-config4/vmmon-only'
make[1]: Entering directory `/tmp/vmware-config4/vmmon-only'
make[2]: Entering directory `/tmp/vmware-config4/vmmon-only/driver-2.4.20-6'
In file included from ../linux/driver.c:38:
/usr/src/linux-2.4.20-6/include/linux/malloc.h:4:2: #error linux/malloc.h is deprecated, use linux/slab.h instead.
make[2]: *** [driver.d] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/tmp/vmware-config4/vmmon-only/driver-2.4.20-6'
make[1]: *** [deps] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/vmware-config4/vmmon-only'
make: *** [auto-build] Error 2
make: Leaving directory `/tmp/vmware-config4/vmmon-only'
Unable to build the vmmon module.

For more information on how to troubleshoot module-related problems, please have
a look at "".

Execution aborted

The installation just bags out on me everytime. I tried to build the modules from the source but no matter what I do, or what folder I select, it doesn't work. I am continuously given the error:
The path "/usr/src/linux-2.4.20-6/include/<insert folder here> is an existing directory,
but it does not contain at least one of these directories ""
as expected.

All the folders I chose have either "linux", "asm", "net" in them.

I am totally lost!

Please help

Go in your directory /usr/src/${linux version}/
and run :
make dep

After that, try to install'll work!

Good luck!
