I've installed Vmware 6.5 on Ubuntu 10.10...
when I start vmware player/workstation its asking for linux kernel header for some compilation but I'm not able to find the appropriate package, see the Image below....
after running following commands
sudo -s cd /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build/include/linux ln -s ../generated/utsrelease.h ln -s ../generated/autoconf.h
Error has been changed like below....
ERROR: modinfo: could not find module vmmon ERROR: modinfo: could not find module vmnet ERROR: modinfo: could not find module vmblock ERROR: modinfo: could not find module vmci ERROR: modinfo: could not find module vsock
