reboots and kernel modules
I recently installed the stock VMWARE that is shipped with SuSE 8.1 -> I then realized that I had version 4 so I used YAST and uninstalled the version of vmware that I had previously setup... When I tried to install the new one I kept getting error messages about a kernel module already existing... I deleted them from my /lib/modules/kernel/..../net directory but I kept getting the same error... After I reboot I reinstalled and VIOLA! it worked fine...
Why did I have to reboot and is there a way around this??
