problem in starting vmware player in fedora 9


hi all.......

i have vmware player installed on fedora9..when in try to open it using
sudo vmplayer it is showing following message

modinfo: could not find module vmmon
modinfo: could not find module vmnet
modinfo: could not find module vmblock
modinfo: could not find module vmci

then it asks for kernel headers..then i gave the path of those headers as /usr/src/linux-2.6.28.1/include it took the path

then it showed following message....

Might check Kang's patches (no guarantees so make a backup of your vm.* driver tarballs in /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/), download the latest vmware-update-.*.tar.gz from http://www.insecure.ws/warehouse/ and run the ./runme.pl.
