VMware vCenter Converter Standalone

I am trying to convert a desktop linux system to a VM but it keep's failing on the kernel version. I updated the kernel this morning using yum. It's Fedora 14. Is that supported or should I just re-create the system from scratch on the VMware server?

The fedora server is running TimeTrex for timeclocks so it most likely would not be too hard to re-create.

Here is the error I got:

FAILED: An error occurred during the conversion: ' * got kernel major revision as ERROR:
kernel version has to be in format 2.6.*, version 2.6.35.14-106.fc14.i686 is not supported (return code 1)'

Thanks, yea I am just going to rebuild that VM manually with a fresh Ubunto instead.

The document clearly indicates Fedora is not supported.

Thanks for that list. I downgraded to 5.0.1 because I will be moving Windows 2003 servers soon to a new IBM VM host once my hardware comes in.
