Unable to install VMware tools
This document (7004887) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
Error message "The path “/usr/src/linux/include” is a kernel header file directory, but it does not contain the file “linux/version.h”
Launch YaST | Software Management and make sure kernel-source is installed
Also make sure that kernel-syms package is installed
If Step 1 and 2 has been completed or is not necessary because at some stage this has already been done but "/usr/bin/vmware-config-tools.pl" is still complaining about missing headers, try the following and run /usr/bin/vmware-config-tools.pl again
cd /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/include/linux
ln -s ../generated/autoconf.h
ln -s ../generated/utsrelease.h
