    Can any one help I am lost as what to try next.
    Have been trying to get VMware to run on Fedora Core 6.
    get the following outputs.

    Message from module for VMware
    The directory of kernel headers (version @@VMWARE@@ UTS_RELEASE) does not match
    your running kernel (version 2.6.20-1.2962.fc6). Even if the module were to
    compile successfully, it would not load into the running kernel.

    So I tried uname -r
    Output from [[email protected] ~]$ uname -r
    2.6.20-1.2962.fc6

    Output from rpm -q kernel-devel
    [[email protected] ~]$ rpm -q kernel-devel
    kernel-devel-2.6.20-1.2952.fc6
    kernel-devel-2.6.20-1.2962.fc6

    Output from ls -d /usr/src/kernels/$(uname -r)*/include
    [[email protected] ~]$ ls -d /usr/src/kernels/$(uname -r)*/include
    /usr/src/kernels/2.6.20-1.2962.fc6-i686/include
    /usr/src/kernels/2.6.20-1.2962.fc6-xen-i686/include
    /usr/src/kernels/2.6.20-1.2962.fc6xen-i686/include
