I've installed debian Squeeze with kernel 2.6.32-5 and I need to install Vmware on it. The problem is that I can't compile the kernel module that is needed to run vmware. I've dug through every possible bit of information on how to install vmware-server on squeeze, but nothing seems to work.
I've decided to get rid of squeeze and install lenny, but I can't really do that because of unsupported ethernet card, so I thought of changing squeeze kernel for some other version and then trying to install Vmware-server.
The problem is: how to change the kernel? Can it be done using aptitude? Or do I have to compile some kernel? Which one to choose? What impact will that make on the system?
