Error installing VMWare Workstation 7 on BT4 Pre Final
I've been trying to install VMWare workstation 7 on my BT4 partition but I keep getting the following error during the install:
"Kernel headers for version 188.8.131.52 were not found. If you installed them in a non-default path you can specify the path below. Otherwise refer to your distributions documentation for installation instructions and click Refresh to search again in default locations."
Searched google and forums but no solution.
Most of the threads had to do with installing backtrack on VMWare instead of the other way around.
Thanks in advance.
Just as a background FYI I've had a few years of experience with RHEL and Fedora, but I'm still rather new to Debian based distributions.
My life is this forum

If not, search for one thread I made about vmtools and follow the part were I mention the headers error. Just change the commands to fit the new kernel (like 184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11). Haven't tried myself because I'm reinstalling backtrack all over again and I'm having some problems with the instalation.

I should have concentrated on the fact I was getting a header error rather than what I was installing on what, considering all it needed was to reference something to compile part of its code.
