http://forums.fedoraforum.org – First download the VMware Workstation 7 for your architecture here: https://www.vmware.com/tryvmware/p/d...rkstation&lp=1 I downloaded: VMware-Workstation-Full-7.0.0-203739.i386.bundle md5sum: a4286d08c2b302f1d3a164dcdc36c884 This is what I've done: Code: # sh ./VMware-Workstation-Full-7.0.0-203739.i386.bundle Install Wizard will appear and click next with default option unless you know what to choose. When finished, start VMware, if it requires kernel-headers, you should try this: Code: [root@fedora ~]# uname -r 2.6.30.9-90.fc11.i586 [root@fedora ~]# yum install kernel-devel Code: ===========================================  Package        Arch    Version          =========================================== Installing:  kernel-devel    i586    2.6.29.4-167.fc11 If the "version" of kernel-devel is equal to your kernel version, just "y" to install it. But my kernel is 2.6.30.9-90.fc11.i586, I've found them on testing (maybe unstable) area: http://mirror-fpt-telecom.fpt.net/fe...sting/11/i386/ You can find them out at the fastest repo for you in updates/ testing (or test)/11/<your architecture> I downloaded 2 file and install them manually using rpm: Code: # rpm -Uvh kernel-headers-2.6.30.9-90.fc11.i586.rpm # rpm -Uvh kernel-devel-2.6.30.9-90.fc11.i586.rpm Now, I'll show you some snapshorts of VMware with Backtrack 4 Pre Final :D (HowTos)
