    Need help with vmware


    when i run ./vmware-config.pl it gets to a part where it says:
    Code:
    What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
    kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]
    well /usr/src/linux/include doesnt actually exist so where does it keep them then?

    a bit more info on what im trying to do:
    first i type vmware and a box apears saying:
    Code:
    VMware Workstation is installed, but it has not been (correctly) configured for your running kernel. To (re-) configure it, your system administrator must find and run "vmware-config.pl". For more information, please read the VMware Workstation documentation.
    so then i run vmware-config.pl:
    Code:
    # vmware-config.pl
    Making sure services for VMware Workstation are stopped.
    
    Stopping VMware services:
       Virtual machine monitor                                      [  OK  ]
    
    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? [/usr/src/linux/include]
    and this is where i am stuck^
