VMware Server - Tools
Okay, here is the story. At my company we are designing a terminal server in VMware. I am setting up the Network Load Balancer and ISCSI interface box.
Anyway, I have come across a very large issue with both virtual boxes. I can't install VMware Tools. I tried going to the VMware forums and got some advice but I still have a problem. Here is a screenshot:
What you're looking at:
The vmware-config-tools.pl scripts looks for the C Header files. By default, it has a location specified which is correct. I did an "ls" to show it.
What I have done thus far:
Attempted to install the any-any patch, however the box is not a "host."
Installed- * gcc
* make (already installed)
Ran these two commands as root in /usr/src/linux-
ran config script.
Still didn't work after reboot, noticed kernel-smp was installed. Removed it, installed kernel-default. Rebooted.
Still doesn't work.
After Googling and asking on the VMware forum, I don't know what the error means nor how to get around this.
VMware ESX Enterprise
256MB allotted memory.
10GB (roughly) allotted disk space.
Any help would be appreciated, thank you.
Sorry, I know this is probably going to be a dumb question (as I'm sure you've already checked), but if you do a uname -r, the kernel version that is returned is for sure the same versions as the headers you are referencing? I know I had that problem before...where I updated my kernel and headers and went to do a reboot, but it still booted up with the old version of kernel...thus breaking vmware when I tried to compile it. What does an ls of /usr/src return? Just curious...
Hey, thanks for the reply. Here's a screenshot:
Does that look like it should? Thanks.
Have you tried using the source underneath /usr/src/linux-188.8.131.52-0.25??
It should be something like /usr/src/linux-184.108.40.206-0.25/include...but not sure. I'll investigate a little more...I believe I have a SUSE disk laying around somewhere. :D
Also...I've not used SUSE in a long time...but shouldn't you have the kernel-headers package installed?
Yes. I just tried /lib/modules/220.127.116.11-0.25-default/build/include
But, to no avail, it doesn't work.
