    Exclamation AARGH... VMWare Server Issues!

    Hey all!

    I'm fairly new to the Linux OS.. When I started playing around with it i started off with Mandriva, then to Fedora and now i'm using Ubuntu. Currently I have 8.10 installed and i'm having an issue with VMWARE Server!

    The installation works all fine and well but once i run vmware-config.pl I get to a stage where i'm building the vmmon module. This is where I get errors. Here's the output that i get:

    Building the vmmon module.

    Using 2.6.x kernel build system.

    Any ideas as to what the problem is and how I can fix this?
