The following libraries could not be found on your system:

The directory of kernel headers (version 184.108.40.206-108.fc9.x86_64) does not
match your running kernel (version 2.6.25-14.fc9.x86_64). Even if the module
were to compile successfully, it would not load into the running kernel.
What's up with that? The config script apparently doesn't like the

I've applied the any-any update (117 -- latest I could find).
And for completeness:
$ uname -a

$ rpm -qa | grep -i kernel
Has anybody got past this, or else done the install and not
experienced it? Ability to run VMWare is really a deal-breaker in my
situation. Any help at all is appreciated greatly.
I'm running VMWare-server-1.0.6-91891.i386 on my F9.x86_64 laptop. I
applied vmware-any-any-update 117 and I do not have this problem. I'm
currently running on a 220.127.116.11-97.fc9.x86_64 kernel, but only because
I haven't rebooted in a while.
