Installing VMWare Server 1.0.3 in Fedora 7

Tip: Every time you upgrade the kernel you will need to rerun the following steps.
Tip: Tip if you have more then 4GB of ram install you will need to have the PAE kernel installed and changed in grub config file to boot to the PAE kernel first

Vmware Server

Run

yum install gcc gcc-c++ kernel-devel xinetd   

uname -r

Next step needs to match the previous step

rpm -q kernel-devel

If the previous step did not match then run

yum -y upgrade kernel kernel-devel

Install the vmware rpm

Get “vmware-any-any-updatexxx” From http://ftp.cvut.cz/vmware/ and install it

Create a blank “config.h” in; Note: the xxx will be the kernel build number

Go to
