    Exclamation vmware workstation issues + problems

    I jsut followed someones' advice on installing vmware-player by doing this:

    I'm running BT2 Final on my HD with VM WKS 6 beta as well - no problems.
    Do this:
    # cd /usr/src/linux

    # make mrproper

    # make cloneconfig

    # make modules_prepare

    # make clean

    then run VMware installer.
    Code:
    bt vmware-distrib # cd /usr/src/linux
    bt linux # make mrproper
      CLEAN   scripts/basic
      CLEAN   scripts/kconfig
      CLEAN   scripts/mod
      CLEAN   scripts
      CLEAN   include/config
      CLEAN   .config .config.old include/asm .version include/linux/autoconf.h include/linux/version.h include/linux/utsrelease.h Module.symvers
    bt linux # make cloneconfig
      HOSTCC  scripts/basic/fixdep
      HOSTCC  scripts/basic/docproc
    make[1]: *** No rule to make target `cloneconfig'.  Stop.
    make: *** [cloneconfig] Error 2

    It wont compile for some reason and I can't get any further than this. And now when I try to go through the vm install it says this:

    Code:
    The path "/usr/src/linux/include" is a kernel header file directory, but it
    does not contain the file "linux/version.h" as expected.  This can happen if
    the kernel has never been built, or if you have invoked the "make mrproper"
    command in your kernel directory.  In any case, you may want to rebuild your
    kernel.
    I need to know how to install vmplayer (I've spent the last hour searching) as I'm doing a demonstration tomorrow.

    Any advice would be great.

    I still can't install vmware because of this issue 4-5 months later. So if anyone could give me some advice, that would be great.
