Install Vmware player on debian unstable.
I use debian unstable (linux kernel 2.6.20). I want to install vmware player 2.0 but I can't compile vmware module.
It is a segmentation fault. There are warning message about version incompatible of gcc. However I still compile it. I am not sure it is a problem.
Anybody know?, how to debug it or fix it.
This is message from vmware-config.pl :
None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Player is suitable for your
running kernel. Do you want this program to try to build the vmmon module for
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 "
4.1.2", while you are trying to use
"/usr/bin/gcc" version "4.1.3". This configuration is not recommended and
VMware Player 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 "4.1.3" anyway? [no] yes

Unable to make a vmmon module that can be loaded in the running kernel:
There is probably a slight difference in the kernel configuration between the
set of C header files you specified and your running kernel. You may want to
rebuild a kernel based on that directory, or specify another directory.
