I am trying to install VMware on my machine. I have downloaded VMware and I am now trying to configure it. After accepting the EULA, the program states;
None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Server 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] y Then;
Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override. What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include] The path "/usr/src/linux/include" is not an existing directory. What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include] /usr/bin/gcc The path "/usr/bin/gcc" is not an existing directory. What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running kernel?[/usr/src/linux/include] How do i find where the C header files are?
I just had a hard drive failure on my mythtv box that I had been running F14 on. I reinstalled F14 and just got about everything up and running like normal again except that I upgraded the kernel by mistake when I was upgrading everything else to current levels. The problem is that I run a hauppauge pvr150 on this mythtv box, and the code for capturing on this card is broken on the latest kernel version. I have the kernel headers and development files installed for the newest kernel that I can't really use, but I didn't install the kernel headers for the older kernel before the upgrade. Now, I am looking for a way to forcefully install the older kernel development files so that I can compile my the proprietary nvidia drivers against it for my adapter. I downloaded the rpm files from the fedora 14 repository directly. Is there an option for rpm that I can use to force the installation?
I'm having some problems compiling mednafen on Suse 11.4. When I run configure, things work fine until I get the following series of errors:
configure: error: *** OpenGL header file not found! I've seen references in a few places that these type ("Present But Cannot Be Compiled") can usually be ignored, but in this case ./configure fails and I can't make. I am unsure why this is, as I've installed mednafen on Suse 11.4 before and it runs fine. I've tried installing various OpenGL-related packages that I can find (Mesa, freeglut, glib, etc) but nothing seems to solve the problem
Not I recently installed a package (Vision Egg) that requires the Open GL libraries and headers, specifically, gl.lib and gl.h. I used Synaptic to install nvidia-current and nvidia-current-dev and it now looks as if the required libraries (under different names) are installed in /usr/lib/nvidia-current and as if the required headers are in /usr/include/nvidia-current. I am a bit confused because I also have /usr/lib/nvidia and /usr/lib/nvidia-173.
The installation of Vision Egg fails with "cannot find GL/gl.h" and "/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lGL"There is a related post a few years ago under thread 200901 but it relates only to a single file problem that is fixed manually. I'd rather avoid that because it looks like it is easily breakable.Is there a standard way --- that is, a method that does not require error-prone manually changing or linking a multitude of file names --- of ensuring that programs which require GL/gl.h actually find the correct nvidia header file and also that the link loader finds the GL libraries.
I've just installed clean copies of both VirtualBox v4.0.8 and Fedora 15. Now I have followed the instructions here : [url] to install the latest VBox guest additions.
Each time I try I get the following message:
The headers for the current running kernel were not found. If the following module compilation fails then this could be the reason. The missing package can be installed with yum install kernel-devel-126.96.36.199-32.fc15.i686.PAE.
However, if I run that command I am told there is no such package available. The guest addition installer continues seemingly OK, but after a restart they are not loaded.
I've just moved to Fedora from Ubuntu due to major issues with its new version.
I'm running BackTrack4r2 which is based on Intrepid. I'm pulling my hair out over this problem. As I try to install VMWare Server 2.0 I'm getting stuck at a question the installer poses: Where are the kernel header files located? It would make sense that they're in /usr/src/linux-188.8.131.52 but when I put that it just says there's no subfolder "linux" as expected and to try again. If I use the default location that VMWare says (/lib/modules/184.108.40.206/build/include) I get an error:
I used Backtrack 5 and Fedora, basically I'm trying to install my wireless card but I don't have these installed to make && sudo. I burned the iso images for backtrack and fedora and booted my computer from them but can't figure out how to install kernel-devel on backtrack for example. I dled yum onto my flash drive but can't figure out how to install it.
I am trying to install the Nvidia Quadro NVS 110 169.04 drivers but am having issues during install. Prior to attempting my install I did install the kernel-devel rpm so it can compile. after running the RPM I get. Quote: No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you like the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel from the NVIDIA ftp site [URL]?
which of course does not work. next it says Quote: "No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; this means that the installer will need to compile a new kernel interface.. i hit okay and move on to. Quote: Error: Unable to find the kernel sources tree for the currently running kernel. Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your kernel and that they are properly configured; on Red Hat linux systems, for example be sure you have the 'kernel-source' or 'kernel-devel' RPM installed. if you know the correct kernel source files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the "--kernel-source-path' command line option
I`m trying to install Intel EXPI9402PT PRO/1000 PT Dual Port Server Adapter on my machine. I download the drivers for this card from intel web page, but I can`t make it work. I`m running OpenSuse 11.3 version. When I tried to install it for the first time I got this message:
Makefile:71: *** Kernel header files not in any of the expected locations. Makefile:72: *** Install the appropriate kernel development package, e.g. Makefile:73: *** kernel-devel, for building kernel modules and try again. Stop
Then I install the kernel-source package and I got this one:
Makefile:107: *** Linux kernel source not configured - missing version header file. Stop.
I also installed kernel-devel package, but I get the same message.
I'm just installed OpenSuse 11.3 (64) on a 30gb SSD, hoping to get virtualbox 4.0 running to virtualize an instance of Windows 7.I went through some pain with my Nvidia video card and actually getting vb to install, but through lots of searching and tinkering got here.I created a vm in the vb control panel, but when I go to start it I get:
Code: Failed to open a session for the virtual machine Win7Main. The virtual machine 'Win7Main' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1.
I am running a vmware on a 64 bit fedora 9. I have already installed kernel header, but the vmware could not find the kernel header, and ask to input the kernel header path. I added /usr/include to the vmware, it complained not a right kernel header.
I installed the latest kernel liquorix (2.6.35) but when i want to install the Nvidia driver downloaded on the Nvidia website (256.53), i have an error message because Nvidia doesn't found the kernel source tree.
I install linux-image-2.6.35-6.dmz.2-liquorix-686_2.6.35-16_i386.deb, linux-headers-2.6.35-6.dmz.2-liquorix-686_2.6.35-16_i386.deb and build-essential. I don't understand why the installation doesn't works.
Is there a way to get the matching Linux kernel headers automatic on a regular kernel update via the Ubuntu packed manager? Every time I get a new kernel I must do an aptitude install linux-headers-`uname -r`
i have a c++ program and i tried to run it using gcc command and it gives header files error i got the header file now but dont know where to place those files?can any one got the idea??? we could not place header files in usr/include folder!
Fedora 11 update released today creates a dependency issue in my x86-64 system: Processing Dependency: kernel-uname-r = 220.127.116.11-191.fc11.x86_64 for package: kmod-wl-18.104.22.168-191.fc11.x86_64-22.214.171.124-3.fc11.1.x86_64 # yum info kernel-uname-r produces "no matching packages to list" the yum info pack tells me kmod-wl is: Metapackage which tracks in wl kernel module for newest kernel so it seems important to have it up to date. What should I do?

I'm runing FC11 and have compiled the vanilla kernel 220.127.116.11 to support Dazuko. It has broken my NFSD server in the process, and I can't figure out why. I get these errors on boot. FATAL: Module nfsd not found. FATAL: Error running install command for nfsd
10.10 x64> Trying to hibernate my notebook using a swap file i get "swap header not found". Is hibernation incompatible with a swap file? or is something else going on here? why would hibernation be incompatible with a swap file?
I am trying to run a script called install.sh as follows: I get a jar file, and extract it using the command: unzip filename.jar -D path/to/files then I navigate to that directory where I extracted the files, and run the command: sh install.sh (where install.sh is one of the files that has been extracted in that directory using the above unzip command.) running this command gives me an error:'nstall.sh: command not found.' among other errors in the script ( from that portion of the script that should not even be executed, which is really weird). However, instead of unzipping the jar file, if I just copied the same install.sh file to that folder, and ran the 'sh install.sh' command, the script runs fine.
I am trying to setup Slacware 13.1 x86_64 to a encrypted partition. I used the README_CRYPT.TXT howto : [URL] At the step when I create an initrd.gz I get this error: Quote: ERROR: No /lib/modules/18.104.22.168-smp kernel modules tree found for kernel "22.214.171.124-smp"
I tried to look into the directory and there was only modules under 126.96.36.199. So I tried to change the command into: Quote: mkinitrd -c -k 188.8.131.52 -m ext3 -f ext3 -r cryptroot -C /dev/sda2
This command was successful, but I don't know if this is alright. I made the changes in lilo.conf, add initrd = initrd.gz. This is all on unencrypted /boot partition. The boot=/dev/sda1 I also set for the unencrypted boot partition. When I boot the system I get a kernel panic:
