Updating fedora kernel headers
Simply re-execute the ./vmware-install.plmodest So I have the correct kernel running and both the kernel-headers and kernel-devel installed and yet I still get the VMPLAYER asking for the location of the C Headers.
I have told it /usr/include/linux and /usr/src/kernels/3.7.3-101.fc17.x86_64/include and also added the directory /linux to the last path and none of these work.
Here is the output: [[email protected] include]# yum install kernel-headers-`uname -r` Loaded plugins: downloadonly, fastestmirror, langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile * fedora: mirror.* mate-desktop-fedora: dl.* mate-desktop-fedora-updates: dl.* rpmfusion-free: mirror.* rpmfusion-free-updates: mirror.* rpmfusion-nonfree: mirror.* rpmfusion-nonfree-updates: mirror.* updates: mirror.Package kernel-headers-3.7.3-101.fc17.x86_64 already installed and latest version Nothing to do [[email protected] include]# yum list kernel kernel-devel Loaded plugins: downloadonly, fastestmirror, langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile * fedora: mirror.* mate-desktop-fedora: dl.* mate-desktop-fedora-updates: dl.* rpmfusion-free: mirror.* rpmfusion-free-updates: mirror.* rpmfusion-nonfree: mirror.* rpmfusion-nonfree-updates: mirror.* updates: mirror.Installed Packages kernel.x86_64 3.6.11-1.fc17 @updates kernel.x86_64 3.6.11-5.fc17 @updates kernel.x86_64 3.7.3-101.fc17 @updates kernel-devel.x86_64 3.6.11-1.fc17 @updates kernel-devel.x86_64 3.6.11-5.fc17 @updates kernel-devel.x86_64 3.7.3-101.fc17 @updates [[email protected] include]# Hopefully works PD: after that, somethimes there are a couple of problems with the VMWare compilation process, so check this links back when i get Fedora 22 with the 4.2 kernel ( I'm not sure) and I installed VMWare Workstation 12.0.1 I had the same problem.

Kernel Header files in the Linux kernel are used for two purposes: Linux headers are needed for building modules that load into the kernel provided by the Linux kernel.
When you need to run virtual machines using hypervisors such as Virtualbox and Vmware Workstation on Kali Linux, it will require you to have Linux kernel headers installed.
Just installed Kali Linux 2.0 or upgraded to Kali Linux 2.0 and you need to install Kernel headers? On our previous article we talked about how to upgrade to Kali Linux 2.0 (Kali Sana) from 1.x version of Kali Linux.
