    cant install linux-header kali sana/ vmware player

    hi,
    i tried to install vmware tools for kali sana but i cant go further than kernel path.
    i tried :
    apt-get update && apt-get install -y linux-headers-$(uname -r)

    it used to work for previous version of kali, but this version i get error: that package cant be find
    is there any other source i need to add to sources.list or what else can i do?

    I also had this issue with Kali 2.0, but it was due to the sources.list missing the http.kali.org entries from a vanilla install using the amd64 ISO. Add these in, update, and you should be good to go.

    /etc/apt/sources.list:
    Code:
    # Regular Repositories
    deb http://http.kali.org/kali sana main non-free contrib
    deb http://security.kali.org/kali-security sana/updates main contrib non-free
    
    # Source Repositories
    deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali sana main non-free contrib
    deb-src http://security.kali.org/kali-security sana/updates main contrib non-free
    Update and Install
    Code:
    apt-get update
    apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)

    Thats not the same.
    Your command: apt-get install -y linux-headers$(uname -r) (missing '-')
    Correct command: apt-get install -y linux-headers-$(uname -r)

    After fixing your source file, you HAVE to run apt-get update.

    Hey guys, I made a post of my solution before replying to this thread
    because I was paying attention to other posts about this issue and didn't see this one. I apologize.

    I'll post my solution on here also.

    It pretty simple for me, hopefully it works for everyone.

    I downloaded - VMware-Player-12.1.0-3272444.x86_64.bundle

    # uname -a
    Linux kali 4.0.0-kali1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.0.4-1+kali2 (2015-06-03) x86_64 GNU/Linux

    # apt-get update
    # apt-get install linux-headers-4.0.0-kali1-all-amd64

    After that, I was able to get on vmplayer with no issues.

    cheers
