Vmware kernel headers issue

hi y’all,

a bit of a noob, but i am trying to get VMware to work and i get an error to locate the Kernel headers

The error is
Kernel headers for version 5.3.5-zen1-1-zen were not found
my uname is
Linux archlabs 5.3.5-zen1-1-zen #1 ZEN SMP PREEMPT Mon Oct 7 19:03:07 UTC 2019 x86_64 GNU/Linux

any help will be appreciated . !

Just join the ArchLabs distro so please be nice , i am coming from Ubuntu :stuck_out_tongue:


Hi there.

Seems like you don’t have linux-headers for zen installed. There are different headers for every different kernel. In normal use they’re not necessary i guess, but with virtual machines you need them.

sudo pacman -S linux-zen-headers


thanks again buddy, being a bit noob, but i will get there! I appreciate the response !
