What is the directory of c header files?

I am new to Fedora, so I try it in VMware, when I run command "./vmware-config-tools.pl", I get the error message, and I don't know What the directory is, can anyone help me?

I have installed the packages needed for configuring VMware Tool, including

binutils - 2.17.50.0.18-1.i386
gcc - 4.1.2-33.i386
make - 1:3.81-10.fc8.i386

Here is the link of screenshot of error message for your reference,

Many thanks for help!

Hello:
Do the following
yum groupinstall "Development Tools"

yum install kernel-headers kernel-devel xinetd

then download and extract vmware-any-any-update114 from here
http://platan.vc.cvut.cz/ftp/pub/vmw...date114.tar.gz
as root
cd vmware-any-any-update114
and run
./runme.pl

There is only directory "/etc/vmware-tools" , no "/etc/vmware", and the file "locations" is in directory "/etc/vmware-tools".

Should I modify rnume.pl?

Hello:
No need to modify anything, just make sure that it configures completely, which it should.

Then start it up [if you used the rpm to install] Applications / Other
or from the terminal type vmware

Seve,

Thanks, the VMware Tools is successfully installed, however, there are some further questions I need your support,

1. how can I connect to the Host OS for file sharing? I enable it in the setting of Guest OS, but it does not work.

2. I use compiz-fusion in Ubuntu (the Host), when I expand the Guest window to full screen, I can not move cursor to switch the workspace, I have to press Ctrl+Alt to release the cursor, is it normal? or can I do something to solve it?

3. sometimes the quest (Fedora) freezes to respond, I can move the cursor but can not input anything or move the application window, and 10 more seconds later, everything recovers itself, is it a Fedora problem? or VMware problem?


Thanks a lot!

Paul

VMware under Suse

I, like Chunchengch am new here and to Linux and I'm trying to install VMware on a Suse platform. I get the request for the C header. If I use usr/include it says the versions don't match. I'm running 2.6.18.8-0.3. I ran the vmware-any-any Steve suggested. vmware-config.pl still gives me the same request for the C header files.

rlb2148,

Check to see in SuSE's package manager if you have the development tools loaded.

Also, you'll need "kernel-devel" and "kernel-headers" packages.

Also, see:

Hope it helps, while I use Fedora, I greatly suspect the packages are similar in nature.

Good luck, I know SuSE forums may help, and the VMware Server forum I linked to I believe has SuSE VMware users.
