    Unhappy VMware installation Problem in centos 5


    hi all !

    when i try to install VMware server in centos 5, i am getting thi error


    None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Server 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] (when i press enter)

    The path "/usr/src/linux/include" is not an existing directory.

    What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
    kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include] /usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-8.1.10.el5-i686/include

    The directory of kernel headers (version 2.6.18-8.1.10.el5) does not match your
    running kernel (version 2.6.18-8.el5xen). Even if the module were to compile
    successfully, it would not load into the running kernel.

    What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
    kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include] (what should i do ?)

    i am new to linux so plz give step by step solutions.

    Thanks

    "Find out where the kernel headers is missing "


    "to Check the running kernel matches the kernel headers in CentOS
    run this command in terminal to verify if the kernel matches in kernel-devel after you install the gcc and kernel-devel."

    uname -r # running kernel
    rpm -q kernel-devel # installed kernel headers

    "if not update ur kernel-devel this command"

    yum -y upgrade kernel kernel-devel
    reboot

    type this command to compile in kernel C header include

    ls -d /usr/src/kernels/$(uname -r)*/include


    i think that command is lacking to install vmware in CentOS (linux)


    ty..


    hope it can help.
