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

    Sorry to come back again with this same old problem !!

    I couldn't install VMWare Server1.06 on a fedora 9.x86_64.

    I followed the tuto,but changed "kernel-devel-2.6.25-14.fc9.i686.rpm" to "kernel-devel-2.6.25-14.fc9.x86_64.rpm" after removing kernel-devel.

    I read here and there different "solutions" on the net but none have helped!

    Is there a "good working" solution to this problem or should I best install the Fedora 32bits before using this tuto?

    Great thanks for your help & comments.

    I finally found a "working solution " to this problem :)

    I won't keep it to myself and like to help any other linux newbie.
    There's an other tuto on the net where patches are used. Have a look here _http://fedorasolved.org/server-solutions/vmserver-install

    I also found that my running kernel and kernel-devel version were not the same using " uname -r && rpm -qa | grep kernel-devel
    " command.

    Sorry Falko but your tutos are certainly and for longtime the best on earth !!

    Have a nice week end.
