Does anyone know the kernel-headers location, or how to determine that location, in Fedora 13? I'm installing vmware-tools and it's prompting for it. /usr/include/ and /usr/include/linux/ were revealed to have many header files, as shown by doing rpm -ql kernel-headers
However the installer rejected these locations. My only guess as to why is because they're not where the currently-running kernel has them. I also tried /usr/src/kernels/(kernelversion).fc13.i686/include/ with no luck...
where you only get offered the kernel-headers for 18.104.22.168-83 by yum but not the kernel or the kernel-devel? I tried yum clean all and both pointing to the baseurl and mirrorlist and it does the same thing for both. Oddly my other laptop with F14 in the wireless cafe showed all three packages were available.
What I don't get are any kernel-headers-<version>.<arch>.rpm Files. Don't I need them to rebuild modules and drivers on System B? Otherwise, how should I copy my new headers to System B? BTW, System B crashes when I try to build the Kernel on it, that's why I'm building debugger Kernels on System A.
Installation of VMware Workstation was ok, but at first launch it ask me for path of kernel-headers-22.214.171.124 Why I have different versions of kernel and kernel-headers? How can I make working VMware? Installation of kernel-headers 126.96.36.199 from package-manager seems impossible.What is the path to specify kernel-headers for VMware?
from what I understand kernel-devel does not bring in ALL the header files for install modules. so what i would like to know is how to install true headers instead of using kernel-devel. I found one tutorial, but it was way out of date.
The problem is that I need to use kernel headers like <linux/interrupt.h>. However, those files do not exist in folder /usr/include/linux. Thus, compilation fails. On the other hand, the files exist in folder /usr/src/kernels/188.8.131.52-105.2.4.fc11.i586/include/linux.
How can I get the missing headers into proper place in /usr/include/? I even tried coping, but extra files are then needed and so on.
I tried to use "make menuconfig", but I couldn't see a missing configuration I need.
I also tried to use " yum install kernel-devel". This tells me "Package kernel-devel 184.108.40.206-105.2.23.fc11.i586 already installed and latest version Nothing to do".
Last night at 1:47 AM yum installed the current version of kernel-headers on my RHEL5 server:
Mar 17 01:47:47 linux1 yum: Updated: kernel-headers-2.6.18-164.15.1.el5.i386 Mar 17 13:47:22 linux1 syslogd 1.4.1: restart.
This locked the server up until I could physically get to it this afternoon and reboot the server. I then finished downloading and installing the new kernel, rebooted again, and the server appears to be running fine.
This is the second time this has happened on this server.
Has anyone else seen this problem when you setup yum to automatically update your servers? Other than manually updating servers, does anyone have any suggestions on how to keep this problem from happening again?
I've been trying to install Vmware Workstation and keep getting an error about Kernel Headers missing! Although I am pretty sure I have the headers installed for my system. It's looking for the PAE version of my headers which I believe it doesn't exist!
I have a problem to install the VMware Server (VMware-server-2.0.2-203138.x86_64.rpm) on "Fedora 13 Desktop Edition 64-bit".I traied all tips I found, but nothing was OK.Please look my linux configuration and the error messages:
The installation of VMware Server 2.0.2 for Linux completed successfully.Before running VMware Server for the first time, you need to configure it for your running kernel by invoking the following command: "/usr/bin/vmware-config.pl". code....
Yesterday, I think I did something stupid: I removed kernel-headers, gcc, glibc-devel and glibc-headers. My box is a CentOS 5.4 webserver (it has loads of packages installed, but that was done through Virtualmin config, so it's quite coherent all in all). The thing is that now I need to reinstall at least the headers and glibc, but hey! this is what I get :
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.
As a follow-on to something Telemachos said in another post:

I would have thought that removing a given kernel package would trigger the removal of the older kernel headers. Can someone confirm that is, or is not, the behavior? I ask this because it seemed to me that the older kernel header packages were indeed removed when I removed some older kernel packages.
For example, the linux kernels I have installed are:
Also, the linux-headers packages I have installed are:
So, when I get around to removing the linux-image-2.6.25-2-amd64 package like this:
I would expect apt-get to automatically also remove linux-headers-2.6.25-2-amd64 and linux-headers-2.6.25-2-common. Is that what will happen, or do I need to explicitly state all three packages on the apt-get remove command?
I get the following error message trying to install dazuko on xubuntu 10.04: "headers for target kernel version could not be found" But when I run sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r), I get the message that I already installed the headers. My current kernel is 2.6.34-020634-generic
How can I install dazuko withouth having this problem??
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-220.127.116.11-32.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.
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`
A recent kernel update seems to have misplaced the Kernel Headers. VMWare needs these headers and cannot find them. Attempting to run VMWARE gets the message: Kernel headers for version 18.104.22.168-0.2-desktop were not found.
Going from Fedora 12 to 13. Got to the point where I have to reboot to install, system reboots to 12. This is a triple boot system with Open Suse and Mint, and the grub2 bootloader from Mint is the bootloader for the whole shebang. In the "how to use preupgrade" instructions there's a line that says "dentify the drive and partition of your Fedora /boot folder." How? If that sounds odd, consider that in my set up "computer" shows 4 partitions (and with just three operating systems..?). I can mount them, but have a problem telling which sytem is Fedora, Suse or Mint. And getting the FEDORA bootloader to find the PREUPGRADE kernel ... Momma said there'd be days like this.
cat /etc/fstab just returned /dev/sda1 on /boot. I installed Fedora first, before Suse or Mint, so being on the first drive or partition sounds right, but the multiple drives throws me, and "just guessing" doesn't seem like the way to go.
Ive also tried downloading RPMs to a usb stick and it said it was the wrong ones for my machine.
How do i find out if my machine is x32 x64 x86?
Anyway im trying to install kernel headers and devel from the fedora installation disk but i dont know how to get to the cdrom thru terminal as i cant copy the RPMs to desktop by drag n drop or using software installer.
I dont have an internet connection to the pc so i cant use yum (which would make things so much easier) so can anyone tell me how how to install these packages thru terminal?
