http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I'm running Fedora 17 on VMware. I need to install the VMware tools. I have followed the instructions but get stuck. It asks for the folder with the includes. I have installed kernel-devel and kernel-headers then updated the kernel. It put the headers in /usr/src/kernels/3.6.5-1.fc17.i686/include but when I give that folder as the answer it says: The directory of kernel headers (version @@VMWARE@@ UTS_RELEASE) does not match your running kernel (version 3.6.5-1.fc17.i686). This implies the VMware tools in Fedora 17 may be out of date. Does anyone have any suggestions? (HowTos)
