    10.10 and vmware 7.0 - problem installing vmware-tools

    Hi,

    I'm trying to virtualize 10.10 on vmworkstation 7.0.0 build-203739.
    10.10 is up and running allright, but I'm having a problem installing vmware-tools.

    During vmware-config-tools.pl I run into an error indicating vm can't find a valid kernel header path...
    Would you like to change it? [yes]

    Now I've installed the headers, but when I look inside:
    /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.35-23-generic/
    I find a broken link:
    source -> /build/buildd/linux-2.6.35

    Whatever I try to enter as a kernel header path is not accepted.

    Anybody know how to work around this?

    Thanks a lot!

    Erwin

    I have the same problem. Very annoying, can't find a fix anywhere. Would be good if someone could help out.

    linking autoconf.h and utsrelease.h worked for me.

    Code:
    cd /usr/src/linux/include/linux/
    ln -sf ../generated/autoconf.h .
    ln -sf ../generated/utsrelease.h .

    Had this on Ubuntu 8.04.4 with kernel 2.6.24-30 on ESXi 4.1u2

    Code:
    Searching for GCC...
    Detected GCC binary at "/usr/bin/gcc".
    The path "/usr/bin/gcc" appears to be a valid path to the gcc binary.
    Would you like to change it? [no]
    
    Searching for a valid kernel header path...
    The path "" is not a valid path to the 2.6.24-30-server kernel headers.
    Would you like to change it? [yes]
    search around and try to modify the version.h / utsrelease.h according to Krusty810 from here:
    http://www.ubuntugeek.com/howto-inst...in-ubuntu.html
    But this didn't work for me.


    At the end uninstall vmware tools and install it via OSP worked for me.
