WMware Workstastion 7 on Fedora 11


To day I wanted to install VMware Workstastion 7 on my Fedora to build some Windows virtual machine for my favourite games, I downloaded VMware Workstation 7 32-bit for my architecture here

https://www.vmware.com/tryvmware/p/download.php?p=workstation&lp=1
VMware-Workstation-Full-7.0.0-203739.i386.bundle
md5sum: a4286d08c2b302f1d3a164dcdc36c884

This is what I've done:
# sh ./VMware-Workstation-....bundle
Install Wizard will appear and click next with default option unless you know what to choose.

When finished, start VMware, if it requires kernel-headers, you should try this:
[root@fedora ~]# uname -r
2.6.30.9-90.fc11.i586
[root@fedora ~]# yum install kernel-devel     

===========================================
 Package         Arch     Version           
===========================================
Installing:
 kernel-devel    i586     2.6.29.4-167.fc11 

If the "version" of kernel-devel is equal to your kernel version, just "y" to install it.

But my kernel is 2.6.30.9-90.fc11.i586, I've found them on testing (maybe unstable) area:
http://mirror-fpt-telecom.fpt.net/fedora/linux/updates/testing/11/i386/
I downloaded 2 file and install them manually using rpm:
# rpm -Uvh kernel-headers-2.6.30.9-90.fc11.i586.rpm
# rpm -Uvh kernel-devel-2.6.30.9-90.fc11.i586.rpm

Now, I'll show you some snapshorts of VMware with Backtrack 4 Pre Final :D
