VMWare Workstation and Fedora 9?



Has anybody successfully configured VMWare Workstation (my version:
6.04, x86_64) for Fedora 9 (x86_64)? I have before me a fully-updated
fresh install of Fedora 9. I then install the VMware-workstation
package and run vmware-config.pl. The first complaint the script makes
is:

The following libraries could not be found on your system:
libX11.so.6
libXtst.so.6
libXext.so.6
libXrender.so.1
libz.so.1

even though each of those is clearly located in /usr/lib64. The
script, however, carries on. Later:

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]
/usr/src/kernels/2.6.25.14-108.fc9.x86_64/include

The directory of kernel headers (version 2.6.25.14-108.fc9.x86_64) does not
match your running kernel (version 2.6.25-14.fc9.x86_64). Even if the module
were to compile successfully, it would not load into the running kernel.

What's up with that? The config script apparently doesn't like the
-108 in the kernel header version, which is missing from the kernel
version. Ack!

I've applied the any-any update (117 -- latest I could find).

And for completeness:

$ uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.25-14.fc9.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu May 1
06:06:21 EDT 2008 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
$ rpm -qa | grep -i kernel
kernel-2.6.25.14-108.fc9.x86_64
kernel-headers-2.6.25.14-108.fc9.x86_64
kernel-devel-2.6.25.14-108.fc9.x86_64
kerneloops-0.11-1.fc9.x86_64
kernel-2.6.25-14.fc9.x86_64

Has anybody got past this, or else done the install and not
experienced it? Ability to run VMWare is really a deal-breaker in my
situation. Any help at all is appreciated greatly.
