Kernel Headers 2.6.24-23-server: Host: Ubuntu 8.04.1 (Hardy Heron) server: VMware Kernel Module Updater message: "Kernel headers for version 2.6.24-23 were not found...." Any way around this???

Hello.

Do I need to reinstall Ubuntu without updating the kernel?

I have VMware Workstation's Latest Version: 6.5.1 | 2008/11/21 | Build: 126130

Thanks in advance!!

Hello.

No, you shouldn't need to re-install Ubuntu.

See if either of these two links helps:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VMware/Workstation

Good Luck!

Well.... I tried the first link and when performing the commands given, I got the following error message: #

gksudo bash ./VMware-Workstation-6.5.1-126130.i386.bundle

Extracting VMware Installer...done.

Same "Kernel headers for version 2.6.24-23 were not found...." error.

Using the instructions from the second link, all installed and VMware launched without a hitch! However, when I made an attempt to install my Guest OS I received the following message (see attachment).

Any ideas?

I really appreciate your help so far!
