Hello everyone. I was trying to compile a Linux kernel module yesterday called vmmon (which you need to make VMware work on Linux) for the 188.8.131.52 kernel. First I installed a GCC package made for my distro, Puppy Linux 2.00. The package turned out to be for a slightly different version of the distro (2.02), so it didn't have the correct header files in it. So, I picked up the appropriate source code from kernel.org and put it in
The VMware install script tries to build the module for you, but after I tell it where the kernel header files are it comes up with:
/lib/modules/linux-184.108.40.206 does contain kernel header files, but it does not contain version.h. This may indicate you have not built the kernel. Unable to build the module.
So I need to know; what is inside this version.h file and how do I create one. Any help would be appriciated.
