What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running kernel?
What VMWare needs is the kernel-header and kernel-devel package from the same version with your current loaded kernel. You can check your loaded kernel by using following command:
Solution is to update your kernel to the latest stable version provided by the repository. But you need to have downtime on this. Steps as below:
1. Update the kernel:
$ yum update kernel -y
2. Install the kernel-headers, kernel-devel and other required packages:
$ yum install kernel-headers kernel-devel gcc make -y
3. Reboot the server to make sure it load to the new kernel:
$ init 6
4. The kernel version has been updated including the kernel-headers and kernel-devel:
$rpm -qa|grep –e kernel-headers –e kernel-devel
