Question VMWare Tools Installation - Kernel header files path not valid.


I recently installed Fedora 15 under VMware Workstation V7.1.4. I'm now experiencing problems installing VMware tools.

I unpacked the VMware Tools, and then...

yum install kernel-devel kernel-headers gcc make
...then taking all defaults from the script. When I get to the section on entering the kernel header path, this happens:

Searching for a valid kernel header path...
The path "" is not valid.
Would you like to change it? [yes]

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running kernel?
...and I dont seem to be able to provide a valid directory for the kernel headers at this point.

The system does not seem to have detected the kernel header path, even though I have installed the kernel-headers package.

I've tried: /lib/modules/
and also: /usr/src/kernels/
without success.

I would be grateful for some help getting my vmware tools installed please.
