Installing the GCC Package and Kernel Sources in Linux

When installing or upgrading Parallels Tools in a Linux virtual machine, you may need to install the gcc package and kernel sources in your Linux guest OS. Kernel sources can be either downloaded from the Internet or installed from Linux distribution disks.

To install the gcc package and kernel sources in the RHEL/Fedora/CentOS Linux distribution, enter the following command in a terminal:

yum install gcc kernel-devel

make

To install the gcc package and kernel sources in the Debian/Ubuntu Linux distribution, enter the following command in a terminal:

apt-get install gcc make linux-headers-$(uname -r)

For information on how to install the gcc package and kernel sources in other Linux distributions, refer to the documentation for these distributions.

If you still experience any problems, try to find a solution in Parallels Knowledge Base or refer to the Parallels support team.
