Install VMware Server 1.0.x (1.0.10) Under Ubuntu 9.10 (Part II)


You'll get an error like this one otherwise when the installer tries to compile the kernel modules needed by VMware (if you answer with yes and get the errors, that's no problem either - just read on):

Building the vmmon module.

Using 2.6.x kernel build system.
