    Hello everybody,
    I have a problem to install the VMware Server (VMware-server-2.0.2-203138.x86_64.rpm) on "Fedora 13 Desktop Edition 64-bit".
    I traied all tips I found, but nothing was OK.
    Please look my linux configuration and the error messages:

    (VMware installation)
    [root@localhost BKP]# rpm -Uvh VMware-server-2.0.2-203138.x86_64.rpm
    Preparing... ########################################### [100%]

    The installation of VMware Server 2.0.2 for Linux completed successfully.
    Before running VMware Server for the first time, you need to configure it for your running kernel by invoking the following command: "/usr/bin/vmware-config.pl".

    (Launching /usr/bin/vmware-config.pl)
    [root@localhost BKP]# /usr/bin/vmware-config.pl

    None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Server is suitable for your
    running kernel. Do you want this program to try to build the vmmon module for
    your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)? [yes]

    Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override.

    What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
    kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include] /usr/src/kernels/2.6.34.6-47.fc13.x86_64/include

    The directory of kernel headers (version @@VMWARE@@ UTS_RELEASE) does not match your running kernel (version 2.6.34.6-47.fc13.x86_64). Even if the module were to compile successfully, it would not load into the running kernel.

    What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
    kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]

    Please anybody can help me to solve this problem?
