Hello all, Recently (a few months ago) I discovered Ubuntu and have had a slippery slide into loving to use it on my laptop. I just upgraded to 9.04, and have attempted to re-install VMWare Server, and have struck a issue. I dont remember this issue being in 8.04 or 8.10 so I think it might be a version problem... When I try and run the vmware-install.pl file, it has a error about the vmmon module. (see below) Code: Unable to build the vmmon module. For more information on how to troubleshoot module-related problems, please visit our Web site at "http://www.vmware.com/download/modules/modules.html" and "http://www.vmware.com/support/reference/linux/prebuilt_modules_linux.html". Execution aborted. I followed the instructions on the site: http://www.vmware.com/download/modules/modules.html and downloaded the any-any patch. I ran it, and now it has much the same error. Code: None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Server is suitable for your running kernel. Do you want this program to try to build the vmmon module for your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)? [yes] Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override. What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running kernel?
