Q. I’ve CentOS 5 installed under vmware. When I run following command:
It asks about Linux kernel headers to build custom headers.
How do I fix this problem?
A. You don’t have development package for building kernel modules to match the kernel. It is required to build 3rd party modules such as vmware or graphics card drivers.
There is a package called kernel-devel. This package provides kernel headers and makefiles sufficient to build modules against the kernel package.
Login as the root, and use yum command to install the same:
# yum install kernel-devel
Now you should able to build kernel modules.Tweet itFacebook itGoogle+ itPDF itFound an error/typo on this page?
