Have been having this problem too.

Just had a kernel update, which included kernel-headers-2.6.27.9-159.fc10.i386.

Downloaded the rpm and opened it with archive-manager, it installs the files into /usr/include, makes sense.

Tried vmplayer again, and pointed it at /usr/include, but still the same problem.

Anyone know what vmware is actually looking for?

Fixed it !!!!

I have kernel-2.6.27.9-159.fc10.i686 (i686) installed, however I had kernel-devel-2.6.27.9-159.fc10.i586 (i586) installed. Not sure why.

I uninstalled the i586 kernel-devel and installed i686, vmplayer now works.

You need to rebuild the VMware modules after each kernel update:
/usr/bin/vmware-config.pl
kernel-headers /-devel need to be installed at the same version than the kernel.

Check with "rpm -qa kernel*"

You must install the kernel-devel package:
Code:
yum install kernel-devel

vmware-config.pl is not used by later versions of vmware. On fedora 9 or 10, if you still have vmware-config.pl you should download the latest vmware app.

The app now installs and it now goes through a setup as it starts.

Make sure it installs the same processor version as the kernel, i.e i586, i686 etc.

Have not got a clue how it happened, maybe I click the wrong devel version in the add/remove app.

I was answering to anitha2324 who is playing around with VMware server 1.0.8 - nevertheless in the VMware server 2.0 there is still vmware-config.pl. This has nothing do to with any app

I am running VM Fusion 2.0.4 on MacBook Pro with 10.5.6. I was able to install "kernel-devel' and then VMWARE tools was installed properly.

I have:
kernel-devel-2.6.27.21-170.2.56.fc10.i686

Other packages that I have previously installed (prior to getting all this working):
yum install make
yum install glibc-devel
yum install rpm-build
yum install vim-enhanced

I had seen some erros as you reported before I installed the above packages!

Re: location of the directory of C header files - vmware installation

In my FC 14, the header folder sits in

/usr/src/kernels/2.6.35.14-106.fc14.x86_64/include

It successfully found the folder when I used the above path.
