Vmware Workstation 5.0.0-13124 under Kubuntu 5.10 (Breeze)
 
Has anyone been able to run Vmware 5 under Breeze???

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include] /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.12/

The path "/usr/src/linux-source-2.6.12" is an existing directory, but it does
not contain at least one of these directories "linux", "asm", "net" as expected.

Here is the contents of my /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.12/

As you can see, it should not be given the shown error. Can anyone shed some light?
Thanks in advance...

The problem more than likely is that there is no softlink from /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.12
to /usr/src/linux. When one compiles a kernel it is recommended to create this softlink to your current kernel. This allows for programs to know a default standard to the kernel and does not require the user to actually remeber the real name of the directory. So if you run the command in /usr/src as root ' ln -s linux-source-2.6.12 linux '. So know if you got /usr/src/linux you are really going to /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.12

Now you selected /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.12/include then it would have worked.

Hope this helps

Thanks for your reply!
In fact I spotted that mistake shortly after posting my message yesterday....
Right now, I'm stock at:

The path "/usr/src/linux/include" is a kernel header file directory, but it does
not contain the file "linux/version.h" as expected. This can happen if the
kernel has never been built, or if you have invoked the "make mrproper" command
in your kernel directory. In any case, you may want to rebuild your kernel.

Is there any way to make the version.h file w/o rebuilding the kernel? I'm not sure I know how to do so. I wonder if any of these would work:

/usr/src$ sudo find /usr/src -name "version.h"
/usr/src/linux-source-2.6.12/arch/i386/math-emu/version.h
/usr/src/linux-source-2.6.12/drivers/net/wireless/acx/version.h
/usr/src/linux-source-2.6.12/include/linux/dvb/version.h
/usr/src/linux-source-2.6.12/include/pcmcia/version.h
/usr/src/linux-source-2.6.12/include/sound/version.h
/usr/src/linux-source-2.6.12/include/wlan/version.h
/usr/src$
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks, once again.
