Re: [SLUG] Vanilla kernel headers


Kevin,

Thanks for that, I'll give that a go. I'm sorry I overlooked it, everything I searched for told me to download the headers using my distros package manager nothing I saw related to a fresh kernel from kernel.org

Thanks again,

Ashley

Guys, I've tried googling this so please don't solve it too easily and
embarass me.

I've got a server running Debian 5 and vmware server that I'd like to
upgrade the kernel in but I want to upgrade it further then Debian's
repos go. After compiling the kernel I've got to run vmware-config.pl
but it asks for the headers and it seems the directory I compiled the
kernel from isn't it.

Can anyone help me out or do I need to stick to the headers offered by
Debian?

Thanks,
Ashley
