Kernel headers for 2.6.17

Where do I find the kernel headers package for linux-2.6.17-ARCH, the new kernel? I searched the repos and only found headers for 2.6.12.

No. Your kernel-headers are NOT meant to match your kernel version. They are usually a sanitised older copy, that programs can actually compile against.

Re: Kernel headers for 2.6.17

Well, I'm trying to reinstall vmware after the big upgrade today. I have vmware 4.5.1. During the install, while running the vmware-install.pl script, when it asks for the directory of the C header files that match the currently running kernel, I enter: "/usr/src/linux-2.6.17-ARCH/include". Then I get this error message: "The kernel defined by this directory of header files does not have the same address space size as your running kernel." I've tried several of the directories under /usr/src/linux-2.6.17-ARCH, but none of them work. Any ideas?

Re: Kernel headers for 2.6.17

update to a newer vmware if you can.

alternatively, search the forums, there's a fix here somewhere that involves editing one line in the vmware-install.pl script. However that older vmware willl probably fail compiling on the modules anyway.

Re: Kernel headers for 2.6.17

Don't try it, I have vmware 5.5 and the modules does not build with kernel 2.6.17, anyway if you insist..

It worked fine here. Have you tried the vmware-any-any patch?

I did the first time, do I have to apply it again? I guess it can't hurt to try again.

Thanks

Re: Kernel headers for 2.6.17

you could also use the vmware workstation package in aur.

after the upgrade last friday i ran it and vmware runs fine.

Re: Kernel headers for 2.6.17

I don't want to use the PKGBUILD in AUR because I only have a 4.5 license. I applied the any-any-101 patch and I still get this eror when trying to build the vmmon module:

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include] /usr/src/linux-2.6.17-ARCH/include

The kernel defined by this directory of header files does not have the same
address space size as your running kernel


Any help appreciated,
:-)

Re: Kernel headers for 2.6.17

Again, look at the patch gandalf showed you and manually apply it.
