    kernel source 2.6.17-7mdv


    does anyone out there have the kernel source? I cant find it. the closest thing is kernel-source-2.6.17.7mdv and then vmware-config still complains that it cant compile a kernel module. And truecrypt too.

    What are the exact error messages you are getting? Also what is the output of running
    Code:
    $rpm -qa | grep -i kernel
    and
    Code:
    $uname -r

    Thanks but I finally got the kernel module to compile by reinstalling the kernel. I had to sub in kernel-2.6.17-6mdv while I did so. Now that vmware is running I need to find out how to make it boot an existing partition. THen I'm going to install the truecrypt kernel module. The problem was the gcc I was using was older than the one used to compile 2.6.17-7mdv. Lastly I have this pesky problem where all I/O to the cdrom/dvd+rw/dvdram/cdrw/cdr is at 1X. I suspect it's the kernel too.

    Yeah... I have some extraneous files, I'm going to remove them.
    Thanks for your help ^_^
