Hi, I just managed to install SMS on my amd-server, To make it the ultimate server for me i need to install vmware server 2.0.2. i made it thru the installer, but vmware-config.pl cant make it. it fails with "the directory of kernel headers does not match your running kernel.

Hard to belive, i tried to compile my own kernel, i tried in a virtual machine with the basic kernel and devel files. is there anything else i can do?

Did you make a full install of SMS?
You need DEVEL series installed, for buiding kernel modules.
If you haven't select devel series during install, install them, by mounting SMS.Native.CD-Install.iso, navigate to "slackware/devel", and run "./install-packages"

i made the install, and kernel source is there. and i figured it out that its something with the vmware-config.pl, i changed 2 lines, and now it complains about missing autoconf.h, i can find autoconf.h but it is in the wrong folder i guess.

Sorry, for the late answer, been quite busy..
First you need to create symlinks for

Code:
ln -s /usr/src/linux-2.6.39.3/include/generated/utsrelease.h /usr/src/linux-2.6.39.3/include/linux/utsrelease.h
ln -s /usr/src/linux-2.6.39.3/include/generated/autoconf.h /usr/src/linux-2.6.39.3/include/linux/autoconf.h


Second there are several patches for newer kernels like.

http://radu.cotescu.com/vmware-server-kernel-2-6-38/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=45952
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/VMware#2.6.39_kernels

give them a try, and when I have time I'll create a script to automate the process.
