    Problem with VMware Workstation

    I'm running 6.06 and the newest versio nof Vmware Workstation.

    I cannot get it to configure right. It gives me errors then asks for linux include files. I am running the special .pl file I found that is suposed to fix that. I apparently need these things, but can't find them anywhere. Any help or point in the right direction would be appreciated.

    You need the Linux headers package that matches your kernel version, if you don't already have it installed. These install the files that VMware needs to /usr/src/<kernel-version>.

    So if uname -a reports:


    You need to install the package linux-headers-2.6.15-26-386, and the files will then be in /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.15-26-386/.
