    Hello all

    I am trying to install vmware on my openSUSE 10.3 machine I followed the tutorial and this is what I got.

    linux:/home/alon/DownloadPackages/VMware # rpm -qa kernel* gcc* make
    make-3.81-66
    gcc-fortran-4.2-24
    gcc42-gij-4.2.1_20070724-26
    gcc-gij-4.2-24
    gcc42-4.2.1_20070724-17
    kernel-source-2.6.22.18-0.2
    gcc-4.2-24
    gcc-c++-4.2-24
    gcc42-fortran-4.2.1_20070724-17
    kernel-default-2.6.22.18-0.2
    gcc42-c++-4.2.1_20070724-17
    linux:/home/alon/DownloadPackages/VMware # cd /usr/src/linux
    linux:/usr/src/linux # ls
    linux:/usr/src/linux # make mrproper; make cloneconfig; make modules_prepare
    make: *** No rule to make target `mrproper'. Stop.
    make: *** No rule to make target `cloneconfig'. Stop.
    make: *** No rule to make target `modules_prepare'. Stop.
    linux:/usr/src/linux #

    Any suggestions ? what do I do , what are rule targets.
    I tried man make but I did not understand it.

    i dont use suse but under rhel the kernel sources are in kernel-devel, you are getting that error because there is no Makefile in that directory

    Thank you ,

    That might be the case. I literally created the /linux directory.
    Might the makefile be somewhere else?
    How do I find it? can I use another directory?

    Thanks
