Morning
I have installed workstation 7 and installed f12 in it. I have tried to install the tools but it cant find the headers. I have the latest kernel 2.6.31.6-166 PAE and installed the headers and devel. I have pointed the the path to /lib/modules/2.6.31.6-166.fc12.i686.PAE/build/include and /usr/src/kernel/2.6.31.6-166-fc12.i686.PAE/include and it wont take any.
I have searched google and the forums and all i find is you need to install the devel and headers which i've done. Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks
Lee

yum install glibc-devel glibc-headers kernel-headers kernel-devel did it for me... even with selfmade-kernel :D

If the guest OS is running the PAE kernel I believe the most appropriate package to install would be kernel-pae-devel rather than kernel-devel (off the top of my head).
