Problems to install vmware tools in fedora 11


After installing the package

http://www.linwik.com/wiki/installin...s+in+fedora+11

Code:
# rpm –I VMwareTools-6.0.5-109488.i386.rpm
And others necessary packages
Code:
# yum -y install gcc kernel-devel patch make
And configure:
Code:
#vmware-config-tools.pl
I get this message:
Quote:
“What is the location of the directory of C header files that mach your running kernel?
I tried to enter manually several locations without success.

Any idea?

Try running "yum -y install kernel-devel". Wait, you already did that.

Try running "yum groupinstall 'Development Tools'".

Run: yum groupinfo 'Development Tools'

Uninstall the packages you don't want.
