Hi list,
- oh dear...

On my rather plain vanilla openSuSE11 (on a dual xeon 32bit/4G RAM) I try to install vmware server 1.0.7. Done that MANY times before - but then I ran into this when I invoke

---first problem-----
Your kernel was built with "gcc" version "4.3.1", while you are trying to use "/usr/bin/gcc" version "4.3". This configuration is not recommended and VMware Server may crash if you'll continue. Please try to use exactly same compiler as one used for building your kernel. Do you want to go with compiler "/usr/bin/gcc" version "4.3" anyway?
--- end of first problem ---

I know what it means, but wait.. I thought I was under a plain vanilla SuSE. Obviously not. How to I remedy this situation?

--- second problem ---
The directory of kernel headers (version does not match your running kernel (version Even if the module were to compile successfully, it would not load into the running kernel.
---end of second problem ---

No so it doesn't seem. But wait, I didn't touch the bl.... kernel. And I DID update (or so I thought) the kernel source and headers and all. It seems not, though...

Any hints?
As always, - thanks a million!
