Has anybody successfully configured VMWare Workstation (my version:

The following libraries could not be found on your system:

even though each of those is clearly located in /usr/lib64. The
script, however, carries on. Later:

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

The directory of kernel headers (version 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
-108 in the kernel header version, which is missing from the kernel
version. Ack!

I've applied the any-any update (117 -- latest I could find).

And for completeness:

$ uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.25-14.fc9.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu May 1
06:06:21 EDT 2008 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
$ 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 kernel, but only because I haven't rebooted in a while.
