Re: gcc version issue trying to install vmware5

Thanks, putting CC into env did work, now I know where the 3.4 exe is!

However I have another problem now with VMware - the script fails again
with the kernel headers (which I have installed).

I've taken a look at the k-headers tree and symlinks, and I think I know
what's wrong, but wanted a 2nd opinion.....

stat'd /usr/src/linux (shows symlink as expected)
File: `linux' -> `kernel-headers-2.6.8-11-amd64-k8-smp'

stat'd /usr/src/linux/include/asm (shows symlink to non-smp, non-k8
kernel tree which is not present)

File: `asm' -> `../../kernel-headers-2.6.8-11/include/asm'

The non-present vanilla kernel tree which is being symlinked to is what
the vmware install script can't read.   Should I have both the k8-smp
kernel headers and the vanilla headers installed, or are the current
kernel-headers faulty??
