    VMWare error while loading

    I tried to make use full use of my 4 gigs of Ram and installed something called PAE if my memory serves me right. Now I have this as a result.
    Thanks in advance





    Linux johnnyw-laptop 3.2.0-34-generic #53-Ubuntu SMP Thu Nov 15 10:49:02 UTC 2012 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

    Prior to upgrading to 12.04 ( from 10.04 ) I had some headers issues

    Download the current version of VMware Player/Workstation and install that.

    If you want to use all of your RAM install 64-bit Ubuntu and VMware.

    Thanks for your prompt reply!
    Ain't there another choice to avoid formatting?

    You're probably just missing the headers for the new kernel you installed. Try running:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r`
    to install them and then VMWare should be able to build it's modules.

    sudo apt-get install linux-headers- 'uname-r'
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Virtual packages like 'linux-headers' can't be removed
    E: Unable to locate package uname-r

    I'd been told I'm missing a .h by a colleague also

    You've made some typos.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r`
    The only space is between uname and -r.
    Also they are backticks ` not apostrophes ' (above the TAB key on a UK keyboard).

    Try just copy and pasting the command.
