Virtual Server 2005 VM Additions Kernel Module Error

Posted on 2006-04-20

I'm trying to install VM Additions on my virtualized SUSE 10 and mandriva distributions. I've installed the kernel source (to my knowledge) and i can see it in usr/src. I've also installed gcc.

the script all failed 1/2 way through with make: **8 [kernel-module] Error 1.

I tried the rpm installation, which was successful, however when i try to start the vmadd in \etc\init.d\ with ./vmadd start, i get the following error:
(kernel module) not found.

any ideas? this happens on both SUSE10 and mandriva.

    I think you have upgraded the SUSE 10 kernel version so that default VM installation do not support. Please check you kernel version "uname -a" first.

    i had in fact installed an "update" kernel, however will reinstall SuSE10 and try the VMadditions on a clean install.
