gcc version issue trying to install vmware5
I was running the install script for vmware5, it complained that my
kernel was compiled using gcc 3.4 and my current gcc is version 3.3.5.
I did not compile my current kernel, I installed it (smp version)
through apt-get, so the error msg could well be true.
I tried to install an updated gcc, but apt-get told me that my gcc was
already up-to-date. Its not!
rahdebian:/home/raheesom/Downloads/vmware5# apt-get install gcc-3.4

gcc-3.4 is already the newest version.
