    [SOLVED] VMware Workstation 9 - C header files matching your kernel not found

    Hi,

    after installation of VMware Workstation I am havint the problem that the C header files matching my kernel were not found when starting VMware Workstation the first time.
    But when try to install linux-headers they are the newest version.

    Code:
    root@k4li:/# uname -a
    Linux k4li 3.7-trunk-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.7.2-0+kali6 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    
    root@k4l1:# agi linux-headers-3.7-trunk-amd64
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    linux-headers-3.7-trunk-amd64 is already the newest version.
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    I also have to set the path to Kernel Headers which should be /usr/src/linux right?

    Code:
    root@k4li:/usr/src# ll
    total 87M
    drwxr-xr-x  2 root root 4.0K Mar 14 15:39 bbswitch-0.5
    lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root   29 Mar 14 10:50 linux -> linux-headers-3.7-trunk-amd64
    drwxr-xr-x  4 root root 4.0K Mar 15 18:41 linux-headers-3.7-trunk-amd64
    drwxr-xr-x  4 root root 4.0K Mar 15 18:41 linux-headers-3.7-trunk-common
    lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root   23 Jan 11 23:49 linux-kbuild-3.7 -> ../lib/linux-kbuild-3.7
    drwxr-xr-x 22 root root 4.0K Mar 15 00:08 linux-source-3.7
    -rw-r--r--  1 root root  79M Mar 15 00:10 linux-source-3.7.tar.bz2
    drwxr-xr-x  2 root root 4.0K Mar 14 15:33 nvidia-304.64
    -rw-r--r--  1 root root 8.5M Jan  8 15:50 nvidia-kernel.tar.bz2
    drwxr-xr-x  8 root root 4.0K Mar 15 22:39 open-vm-tools-9.2.2
    Does anyone havin the same problem?
