VMware Server – How to install vmware server 2.0.x on 2.6.34 Kernels

With the 2.6.34 Kernel series my machine complained when building the modules for VMware server. Something to do with unable to find the autoconf.h file.  After a bit googling I found a few comments the lead me to try creating symlinks. The new kernels put the header files in /lib/modules/2.6.34/build/include/generated whereas the build process looks for the files in /lib/modules/2.6.34/build/include/linux.

To resolve this I needed to create symlinks as shown below:

cd /lib/modules/2.6.34/build/include/linux

ln -s ../generated/*.h .

Then follow the following:
