I'm having trouble getting the header files for the FC5 kernel I attempted to follow the release notes and anyother information I found on this forum. So please bare with me, I've been using linux since fedora 3 so this is new to me.
Here is what I have done and what my problem seems to be.
I did a fresh install of only the base and all development components of FC5
I installed the yum-utils
I downloaded and installed the following files
uname -r reveals the following 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5smp i686
i ran the following rpmbuild -bp --target=noarch /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/kernel-2.6.spec
it created this --> 'linux-2.6.15.noarch'
i renamed it to linux-2.6.15 since the mv linux-2.6.15 statement below won't work this way
these were my next commands in order
cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/kernel-2.6.15 /usr/src/
mv linux-2.6.15 /usr/src/
ln -s ./linux-2.6.15 linux
cp configs/kernel-2.6.15-i686-smp.config .config
The MAKE worked fine. Now I installed vmware server beta. during the config for the kernel headers the path is /usr/src/linux/include. When I select it by entering i get this message
The directory of kernel headers (version 2.6.15-prep) does not match your running kernel (version 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5smp).
What am I doing wrong here?
thanks in advance.
