When I attempt to point the VMWare Kernal Module Updater to the location /usr/bin/gcc or /usr/lib/gcc, still doesn’t find it.
I have gcc, gcc-7, gcc-9, gcc-ar, gcc-ar-7, gcc-ar-9, gcc-nm, gcc-nm-7, gcc-nm-9 gcc-ranlib, gcc-ranlib-7, gcc-ranlib-9 all of which have lrwxrwxrwx permissions (so they’re executable). the gc and gcore folder are -rwxr-xr-x
How can I fix this?
