When I try to run VMware 7.1.4-385536.x86_64 I see this message: "Before you can run VMware, several modules must be compiled and loaded into the running kernel GCC 4.6.0 GNU C Compiler (gcc) version 4.6.0 was not found etc.." I am running: 184.108.40.206-0.fc15.x86_64
I want to install debian on vmware workstation 7.1.4 but there's a problem! when I try to install vmware tools or open-vm, it can't complete compile modules of vmware. It is a big problem... It seem problem of kernel version after 2.6.37... But I can't find solution. logs.... Before you can compile modules, you need to have the following installed...
I upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04 2.6.32-10-generic today. After a succesful update that fixed a couple of nagging problems on my laptop (nice work guys) I started VMware Workstation. I got the expected "Before you can run VMware, several modules must be compiled..."
The compile errors out and points to the setup log. I have searched and found several very similar posts all relating to build-essential or kernel-headers not being installed. I have verified both are installed and up to date.
Here's the important part of the log:
Code: Jan 15 17:39:16.079: app-139708855981824| Trying to find a suitable PBM set for kernel 2.6.32-10-generic. Jan 15 17:39:16.080: app-139708855981824| Building module vmmon.
I have played around with Fedora for a few years and recently switched to Ubuntu. I am installing VMWare Workstation version 7.1.0 from a retail packaged CD. When I attempt to install VMWare Workstation and VMWare Player I get the following error:

I tried installing the patch for kernal 2.6.38-8 found here - [URL] - but it did not resolve the issue. Is there a patch for kernal 2.6.38-10?
I also found this posting for the same problem: [URL]. I followed the following instructions as advised in the post . . . sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install make sudo apt-get install gcc
Then enter: uname -r
My kernel was: 2.6.38-10-generic sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-2.6.38-10-generic Now run the vmware-install.pl script.
Everything ran without error. However, I continue to get the same error. Another post suggested uninstalliung and reinstalling the software, but this had no affect either. Another post suggested that after running the above update to them run the /usr/bin/vmware-config.pl script. However I do not seem to have the vmware-config.pl in my /usr/bin directory. I checked the various VMWARE directories in /etc and the /tmp/vmware-root directories but no vmware-config.pl
Actually I found a discussion on this topic. But my problem a bit different from the discussion made over there...The major discussion in that topic is related to the Graphics Issue. But my problem is with the CPU(as my machine says so).... I am posting my screenshot herewith. Please take some time to review it. This would be grateful.
Actually the error says: "This Kernel requires an x86-64 CPU. but only detected i686 CPU. Unable to Boot - please use a kernel appropriate for ur CPU." What does this mean?? My machine has Intel Core 2 Duo t6600 processor. Is Virtualization Playing a role in this issue...??
I have Vmware Fusion 2.0.6 (196839) running on my MacBook Pro. I installed Fedora 11 on the fusion and it works fine. The only problem that I am having is that when I try to install vmware tools, by runnning ./vmware-install.pl in the terminal, I am prompted with this message: What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]
If I press Enter, the same message pops up. I am fairly new to linux, and I am just setting this up so I can set up a web server on this virtual machine for testing purposes.
I am very much a Newbie to Linux/Fedora. Just installed Fedora 10, but having some problems with hardware driver recognition, particularly a wireless network PCI card. ndiswrapper is looking for a kernel in usr/src/kernels, which doesn't exist.In Fedora, is it necessary to compile a kernel? Looking through the FAQ at kernelnewbies, states to extract the kernel to a Linux directory, in usr/src, which also doesn't exist.
I need to install restricted codecs (MP3, WMA, etc) in Fedora but I wanna download them at home. Is there a way I can download them in Ubuntu, put them on my USB Hard drive and install them from there?
I downloaded and installed successfully vmware workstation 7 on my computer. but now when I run it it ask for kernal headers of linux kernal 2.6.38-10-generic, some C files it is looking for to compile its modules. I have searched the internet for the location of the files but I have not been able to. where are these linux headers stored in Ubuntu 11.04
I was happily running F10 and against my better judgement when it offered to upgrade me to F11 I decided to give it a try. The F11 install hung at 893 of 1626 packages installed. Some SE Linux package was in process of install. On the next boot the installer fails to upgrade for a corrupted root. It says I can backtrack and do a full install, but crashes with a bug when I choose backtrack.
So here is my question - Can i edit the command line and tell the installer to full install rather than upgrade? Or am I stuck with downloading a DVD ISO and doing a full install that way. I've done F8, F9 and F10 so full install from DVD doesn't bother me.
I have 6GB of RAM and I'm planning to install Fedora 14 32-bit to achieve a higher degree of compatibility. Does fedora automatically download and install a PAE enabled kernel when it detects more than 4GB of RAM (Just like Ubuntu)?
This is our first time choosing and installing linux. Our other servers are all windows 2008 x64. We were told to install fedora 13. I can only find a download for the desktop version and we're looking for the SERVER x64 download. Could I please get a link?
Is it possible to install Snow Leopard 10.6.6 VMware AMD edition (which I downloaded) on VMware linux? It is under Windows 7 so I just need to know if everything of VMware linux (like Hardware Virtualization) is the same under linux as for Windows.
I made a Kubuntu 10.04 LTS VMware virtual machine, and I think it may be useful for people who are curious about Ubuntu and just want a "taste" of it.Following is a brief information about this virtual macchine:
I have been using VMware Player for some time to host Fedora VMware images on Windows XP. I have been using Fedora 11 and 12 (both 32 and 64 bit) and recently started to use Fedora 13.
I use as a base the images provided by thoughtpolice. http://www.thoughtpolice.co.uk/
I usually install VMware tools and also keep the images updated (yum update) which sometimes changes the kernel.
I have recently had problems with the snapshots not having a network when I restore them. So far I don't have the problem with Fedora 11 and do have it with Fedora 12 (but used not to). I do have it with Fedora 13.
In each case the problem goes away when I uninstall the VMware tools and comes back when I install them again.
One of the symptoms is that SElinux complains about not being able to do something with /var/run/vmware-active-nics.
It looks to me that something is incorrect in the actions being taken when the snapshot is being restored. It does not happen every time and sometimes the network restores itself.
The network can be restored by rebooting the image.
I seem to be having a problem getting VMware 2.0.2-203138 installed on Fedora 13.I've downloaded the rpm from VWware's site, and ran rpm -iv VMware-server-2.0.2-203138.i386.rpmAfter I ran vmware-config.plIt came back saying it will use complier /usr/bin/gcc and asks me for the location of the C header files.I tell it /usr/src/kernels/220.127.116.11-147.2.4.fc13.i686/include but it comes back with the following error message

I wanted to explore Vmware ESX (Free Download) on my Linux Machine. What Package I need to install on Fedora ?
I've looked through the forums and found that installing openmotif may fix my problem. I tried it but to no avail. Here is my challenge, I'm trying to install Grid Engine on my VMWare fedora installation. I get this dependency error:
Quote: rpm -i sun-sge-bin-linux24-x64-6.2-5.x86_64.rpm error: Failed dependencies: libXm.so.3()(64bit) is needed by sun-sge-bin-linux24-x64-6.2-5.x86_64 libXp.so.6()(64bit) is needed by sun-sge-bin-linux24-x64-6.2-5.x86_64 sun-sge-common = 6.2 is needed by sun-sge-bin-linux24-x64-6.2-5.x86_64
I installed the latest version of openmotif and when I do a search for the two files, there is no libxm.so.3 but libxp.so.6 is there. When I try to install the rpm again I still get the exact same error.
