You don’t have development package for building kernel modules to match the kernel. It is required to build 3rd party modules such as vmware or graphics card drivers.
There is a package called kernel-devel. This package provides kernel headers and makefiles sufficient to build modules against the kernel package.
Login as the root, and use yum command to install the same:
# yum install kernel-devel
So I rebuilt the modules with these commands
vmware-modconfig –console –build-mod vmmon
vmware-modconfig –console –build-mod vmnet
vmware-modconfig –console –build-mod vmci
Then reloaded the modules
# modprobe vmmon # modprobe vmnet # modprobe vmci
Now I get;
[root@gemini ~]# service vmware restart Stopping VMware services: VMware Authentication Daemon [ OK ] VM communication interface socket family [ OK ] Virtual machine communication interface [ OK ] Virtual machine monitor [ OK ] Blocking file system [ OK ] Starting VMware services: Virtual machine monitor [ OK ] Virtual machine communication interface [ OK ] VM communication interface socket family [ OK ] Blocking file system [ OK ] Virtual ethernet [ OK ] VMware Authentication Daemon [ OK ] Shared Memory Available [ OK ]
