Author Topic: [SOLVED] VMWare 1.04 Server on VectorLinux 5.9 Standard  (Read 2130 times)

Hi Everyone,

Just wondering if anyone else had success installing VMware 1.04 Server on VectorLinux 5.9 Standard.  It seems the problem is that the Kernel Headers that got downloaded are older then my kernel and that appears to be why it is failing:

The directory of kernel headers (version 2.6.21.5-smp) does not match your
running kernel (version 2.6.22.14).  Even if the module were to compile
successfully, it would not load into the running kernel.

Is there somewhere where I can get the more current Kernel Headers - I got the 2.6.21.5-smp from slapt-get --install kernel-headers

Thoughts?

Steve

Maybe you can find your kernel sources/headers here: http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-5.9/kernels/

although, I don't see 2.6.22.14 - I only see 2.6.22.7 or .15ck... hmm.... Huh

the kernel source is on your install ISO.
if you didnt install it at install time you can mount the ISO and install it from there.

hmm, I used the Vector 5.9 Standard Live CD.  Not sure if it's on there, can't seem to see it.  If it isn't it might be a good idea to post the kernel-headers so people who didn't get it can slapt-get --install it.

For now, I'll d/l the non-live cd and see if I can extract it from there...

thx,
Steve

btw- thx for the quick responses, I'm totally floored!  And thanks to all the devs for Vector 5.9 - It has a very stable feel to it and I quite enjoy the new look.

gitarman,
The livecd does not have any of the dev tools or kernel sources you will need to get vmware running.
once you get the install cd downloaded you need to run the commands below as root to install the dev and kernel-source packages.
Code:
mount /mnt/cdrom
cd /
lzma -cd /mnt/cdrom/veclinux/required/dev.tlz|tar xp
lzma -cd /mnt/cdrom/veclinux/required/kernel-src.tlz|tar xp

HTH, and glad you like VL

thx, just as a heads up to anyone else looking at this thread - the path on the VectorLinux 5.9 Gold Standard CD is in the 'optional' dir, not 'required' ...

cheers, that solved it.
