I am a Linux newbie. Greener than green. Please don't assume I know something.
Synopsis I need help finding the path to the kernel header because that's part of an installation process for VMware tools.
Background I just installed Fedora 16 (64-bit) on a VMware Workstation VM. I can log in to the desktop and there are no obvious errors about the general installation. VMware Workstation has a helper application called VMware Tools that runs in the VM -- I installed it on my Fedora 16 VM (I think that the install succeeded because the post-install configuration script started).
The post-install script is asking me for the path to the kernel header; the message I get is: "The path '' is not a valid path to the 3.1.0-7.fc16.x86_64 kernel headers. Would you like to change it?"
I used Google and thought that it would be at /usr/include/linux or /usr/include/linux/kernel.h. Neither path works. /lib/modules/3.1.0-7.fc16.x86_64 doesn't work either.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
