Thanks

Things will compile using compiletc and the kernel source

Well, vmware-config.pl asks specifically for headers location...

Once you've unpacked and prepared the kernel source (in the location of your choice), you can let mware-config.pl know where they are  ;)

And where do I get kernel source, is it this one ?

http://tinycorelinux.net/4.x/x86_64/src/kernel/linux-3.0.21-patched.txz

"prepared the kernel source" - what do you mean?

Thanks

Hi sebus
Go to the search page and enter  "make prepare"  including the quotes.

Yes. And you also want  config-3.0.21-tinycore64

Absolutely, takes a bit of searching. Have that all going, but no path (tried many) to prepared kernel does gets accepted during vmware tools install.
So I am in same place...

Thanks Rich, slowly getting there but still strugling.

Now the linked /usr/scr/linux/include gets recognized, but during vmware-config.pl run I get an error

depmod: ./kernel.tclocal: No such file or directory

which is "fixable"  by following this: http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,12836.msg70452.html#msg70452

But then install just fails (as per attached screenshot)

Hi sebus
It looks like gcc can't find the assembler. Did you install compiletc.tcz? What happens when you enter:
Code: [Select]
as --help

It gives the usage options, it definitely is found.

Hi sebus
In the line right above   gcc: error   does the file   /tmp/modconfig-........./linux/driver.o   exist?

From your screenshot, the kernel source has not been prepared properly, otherwise Modules.symvers would be present - using "make modules" on the kernel source will fix this.

OK, if I do run make modules, I get rid of the error about missing Modules.symvers, but it makes no difference to the other gcc error (as attached)

And there is NO /tmp/modconfig...
