vmware tools & fedora 5 & c header

hello,

i tried to install vmware-tools on fedora5. but i can´t locate the c header

[root@fmail ~]# uname -r
2.6.15-1.1955_FC5

i installed kernel-devel and tried this location

...
What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include] /usr/src/kernels/2.6.15-1.1955_FC5-i686/include/

In file included from <stdin>:2:
/usr/src/kernels/2.6.15-1.1955_FC5-i686/include/asm/page.h:71:23: error: mach_page.h: No such file or directory
The kernel defined by this directory of header files does not have the same
address space size as your running kernel.

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

what´s to go wrong

Phil, please first understand that not everybody is able to read *all* the posts that come around here. I am a regular visitor of this forum, but tonight it's the first time I saw your post.

Second, I don't know what vmware tools are. But I do know that running the vmware-config.pl script (for configuring vmplayer against the current kernel) asks the same questions you mentioned. So I searched for a file/dir with "kernels" in it. Om my fc4-32 system (with kernel-develop installed), that location turns out to be: /usr/src/kernels/2.6.15-1.1830_FC4-i686/include/.

Hope this can help you.

Cheers, Paul.

I am having the same problem (as listed in the first email) with Core 5 final. The only difference is the kernel version (2054). I can find the kernel source directory that vmware-config.pl is looking for but I can't get past the address space error...

Sorry I can't help but at least you're not alone.

Grab the vmware-any-any-update98.tar.gz from here and execute the runme.pl script. Worked like a charm for me.

I tried that but my virtual machine hung when booting Windows 2000. Sure, I was able to configure and start the machine but it still doesn't work right...

Oh well.

Actually the problem was with my virtual machine, not vmplayer. I ftped the vm over to my XP box, fixed the machine with VMWare workstation and all is now well.

Thanks for the link.

vmware-player install [problem

forgot to mention, I am running the 64bit fc5


I am running fedora FC5; tried to install vmware-player using the file vmware-any-any-update from the vmware web site

before that ran the rpm install. When I try to start it for the first time the following happens
Quote:
rying to find a suitable vmmon module for your running kernel.

None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Player is suitable for your
running kernel. Do you want this program to try to build the vmmon module for
your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)? [yes]

Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override.

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

The path "/usr/src/linux/include" is not an existing directory.
Can someone tell me where the directory of C header files is located.

Tried to use "find" but I seem to have forgotten how to make it work so that it doesn/t list ALL of the files rather that just files containing "gcc" or "kernel" etc

Thankyou for any help available

not sure if this works, but try /usr/src/kernels/2.6.(your_exact_kernelversion_here)/include

cheers, paul.

I had the same error when I installed the XEN (virtual machine) package during a Fedora core 6 install. I simply removed the package, via the Fedora add/remove packages, and the Kernel rebuilt without the XEN extension to the name of the kernel.

Then I got past the error.

Maybe you did the same?
