problem while installing vmware 5.0 on debian
hi, i'm trying to install vmware 5.0 on debian sarge.. and i can't get
it to work.. i first downloaded the vmware from the offical site (the
tar package), and started to install.. the install went fine, then i
patched vmware-any-any-update90.. then i ran vmware-config.pl, that's
when problem poped up, when it tries to compile my kernal-headers, it
gave me this error:
Your kernel was built with "gcc" version "3.3.5", while you are trying to use
"/usr/bin/gcc" version "3.3.6". This configuration is not recommended and VMware
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 compiler
"/usr/bin/gcc" version "3.3.6" anyway? [no] y
i answered y, and then in the end, it gave me this error:
