I am trying to install
yum since during the installation of
vmware-tools I get a message asking for the path to the kernel header files for the 3.10.0-229.7.2.e17.x86_64.
yum install kernel-headers returns Package kernel-headers-3.10.0-229.7.2.e17.x86_64 already installed and latest version. But the directory
/usr/src/kernels is empty.
Are the kernel headers installed somewhere else? Or should I be asking
yum to install something else?
Path provided to vmware-tools for kernel headers
Searching for a valid kernel header path...
The path "" is not a valid path to the 3.10.0-229.7.2.e17.x86_64 kernel headers.
Would you like to change it? [yes]
Providing the path
/usr/include/linux gives the same response again but with "" replaced with the path provided.
