    I'm having trouble getting vmware installed on fedora 7. I'm using the latest version, 1.0.3

    I've followed falko's walkthrough: http://www.howtoforge.com/vmware_server_fedora7

    When running the vmware-config.pl, I get stuck here:

    Of course, /usr/src/ does not have a linux directory, but I'm not sure where to point this to. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you!
    Michael

    Did you install the package groups
    Development > Development Libraries
    Development > Development Tools

    ?

    I did, actually I think the problem might have been using the xen kernel. It was installed with virtualization by default. I'm going to try to remove virtualization and then see if that helps.

    Problems in the new kernel of fedora7

    I am using the new kernel of Fedora7, I followed the instructions in this link: http://www.howtoforge.com/vmware_server_fedora7 and after trying to apply the patch I get the following errors:

    Any idea how to solve this issue? Is there any updated patch for this?

    Thanks,
