(update: I previously did a test install on a Win08 server at home and didn't have a problem with apt-get as I am on a second install box with was setup by my hosting company. The second box has Win08 with 5 static IP addresses and no DHCP, so I'm thinking that this might be part of the problem. When I install, it often says "udhcpc No lease failing")
(update #2 - I think all I needed to do is run:
sudo apt-get update
and it looks like it fixed the "E: Couldn't find package kernel-source" problem. We'll see.)
I'm running into a snag in getting VMTools installed after installing on VMWorkstation 6.5.
I mounted the virtual cdrom and attempted to install VMwareTools-5.0.0-<xxxx>.i386.rpm
I'm doing the RPM (rpm -Uhv /mnt/cdrom/VMwareTools-5.0.0-<xxxx>.i386.rpm) method from the command line, but it's requiring "make" to compile it.
Here's a little on the site about how to set it up:
When I try "sudo apt-get install kernel-source", it returns:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Couldn't find package kernel-source
Not sure if I'm on the right path here. Got any suggestions?
