VMWare workstation 6: vmware-config.pl problem... kernel 2.6.25.3-18.fc9.i686
 
I attempted to install VMware Workstation 6.0.3 for Linux Version: 6.0.3 | 3/14/08 | Build: 80004

I downloaded and installed VMware workstation by just double clicking the rpm file I downloaded, entered my root password and then after the install... I did the "vmware-config.pl" in the terminal... this is what I got

Quote:

Making sure services for VMware Workstation are stopped.

Stopping VMware services:
Virtual machine monitor OK

Configuring fallback GTK+ 2.4 libraries.

In which directory do you want to install the theme icons?
[/usr/share/icons]

What directory contains your desktop menu entry files? These files have a
.desktop file extension. [/usr/share/applications]

In which directory do you want to install the application's icon?
[/usr/share/pixmaps]

Trying to find a suitable vmmon module for your running kernel.

None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Workstation 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? [/lib/modules/2.6.25.3-18.fc9.i686/build/include]

For more information on how to troubleshoot module-related problems, please
visit our Web site at "http://www.vmware.com/download/modules/modules.html" and
"http://www.vmware.com/support/reference/linux/prebuilt_modules_linux.html".

Execution aborted.
note: the line with "@@@@" infront of it is incorrect because I copied it from vmware forums and their forums parsed that string as a URL and I don't remember what it looked like before

any suggestions or is this just another incompatibility due to kernel changes?

Thanks

Have you tried vmware-any-any ?

sinatosk 17th May 2008 11:06 AM

sorry? what is that ( I'm new :p )

edit: nm... found some info http://communities.vmware.com/message/76957 thanks for the info

PilotJLR 17th May 2008 02:20 PM

Note that you will need the any-any-117 for F9 (at least I did).

tinti 17th May 2008 02:41 PM

Always the same for the vm products, does anyone know the official source for these any-any patches, as it is always another location you have to google and to find the resource?
