I am running kernel-2.4.26.
When I tried to install VMware, I received the following message:
yaochan:~> sudo /usr/bin/vmware-config.pl
Making sure services for VMware Workstation are stopped.
Stopping VMware services:
Virtual machine monitor done
Trying to find a suitable vmmon module for your running kernel.
None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Workstation is suitable
running kernel. Do you want this program to try to build the vmmon
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.
Your kernel was built with "gcc" version "3.3.3", while you are trying
"/usr/bin/gcc" version "3.3.4". This configuration is not recommended
Workstation may crash if you'll continue. Please try to use exactly same
compiler as one used for building your kernel. Do you want to go with
"/usr/bin/gcc" version "3.3.4" anyway? [no] yes
What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your
kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include] /usr/src/kernel-source-2.4.26/include
The path "/usr/src/kernel-source-2.4.26/include" is an existing
it does not contain at least one of these directories "linux", "asm",
There are a few things:
1) I got all the kernel source and the directory
does contain directories "linux", "asm" (a lot of them) and "net".
2) It appears to me that there should not be any significant difference
between gcc-3.3.3 and -3.3.4, right ?
Also, I found one case where vmware-config.pl complains about the
difference between 3.3.2 and 3.3.3, and
the difference was indeed insignificant.
Is there a way to install VMware workstation on my machine ?
