Question VMware player problem, no headers found

Hi, I've been working on this problem for two nights, googled a lot, but still no luck.

I'm working on Fedora 14, here's my kernel version
[root@terran /]# uname -r
and I've booted from this kernel, I've installed the same kernel-headers:
[root@terran /]# yum install kernel-headers
Package kernel-headers- already installed and latest version
Nothing to do
then I downloaded the latest VMware Player from
install it, and open it, then this dialog appears:
click to see the problem
I've tried all the possible path for kernel-headers:
PHP Code:
but it always says:
clilck to see the error information

Thanks for reading this, any suggestion is appreciated.

Try this (as root):
ln -s /usr/src/kernels/ /usr/src/linux
Stupid expects the headers in "/usr/src/linux" instead of "/usr/src/kernels"...

Here's a great, great article that might help with any other problems you might encounter:
